What is the difference between shared SSL and private SSL?

SSL (secure socket layers) encrypts information as it is transferred across the internet.

Shared SSL will use a HostGator domain and will cause certificate warning messages to pop up on your site.

Private SSL will use your domain name and will not cause any warnings messages.

Private SSL is preferred for protecting credit card information for E-Commerce websites. This is because shared SSL warnings make people uncomfortable with submitting their credit card information on your website.

The shared SSL is installed globally on the server and all clients can use it. Its certificate is self-signed and is configured to work with SiteGround server's name. That's why it will always show a pop-up warning when used. On the other hand, the Private SSL is issued especially for your domain by a trusted authority. Browsers can validate the private SSL and will show a secure icon.
