There are two types of SSL certificates:
A Shared SSL Certificate is one that is shared by all users on the server. A big benefit of Shared SSL is that it is free, and it is just as secure as a Dedicated SSL Certificate. The drawback however is that the Shared SSL address will be similar to: https://secure##.webhostinghub.com/~userna5
This address not only shows your cPanel username, but it also shows "webhostinghub". While this SSL Certificate is just as secure as a Dedicated SSL Certificate, if the user notices your website url change from http://YOURdomain.com to https://secure##.webhostinghub.com/~userna5, it may scare them off.
Dedicated SSL certificates are a great alternative to Share SSL Certificates. While they are not free, they do add much more peace of mind to your customers as the SSL Secured URL will look like https://YOURdomain.com and not change to https://secure##.webhostinghub.com/~userna5.
Please keep in mind that even though you host through Web Hosting Hub, you are not required to purchase a Dedicated SSL certificate through us, you can purchase one from almost any Certificate Authority and request that we install it for you. For more information on obtaining a CSR (Certificate Signing Request) so that you can purchase or transfer a third party SSL, please see our article: How to Request a CSR when Purchasing an SSL Elsewhere.
