An ip (Internet Protocol) address is a series of numbers assigned to every device on the web. All devices laptops, mobile phone, and servers that host websites have their own unique ip address.

Does your online business need an SSL certificate? This is a question that we frequently receive. First off you need to understand what an SSl certificate is, and what it is used for before you decide to go ahead with the purchase and the install. SSL stands for secure socket layer and the main objective of installing one are to give your customers an added layer of protection during transactions or when communicating with you via an online form. You can tell by your web browsers the address bar if a website is using ssl encryption by the simple https: versus the http:. This gives your online business credibility and your customers added peace of mind when filling in credit card information or filling out a form with personnel information. So if you are doing any kind of commerce on your website and the customer isn’t going to a third party site like say PayPal it would be wise to invest in an ssl certificate. The cost is 50 to 75 dollars per year plus the cost of a dedicated ip address for anybody on a shard web hosting package. An ip is usually an additional 2 dollars per month or 24 dollars per year.
