SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the data that clients submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they input their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your website and will make it more inviting to customers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that is usually required for the SSL installation. If you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the capital, you could avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services since our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
