SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the data which customers submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they input their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the safety of your site and will make it more appealing to customers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's typically required for the SSL installation. If you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the money, you can avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services as our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

This way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL.
