FileMaker Network - data transfer security?

Your post


     Hi, I am looking into hosting a database with a FMP hosting company. With the shared hosting package SSL is not available. The data held in the database is not ultra sensitive, but it should not be sent across the internet 'in the clear'.
     My understanding is that FMP Network sends information in a proprietary format that cannot be easily deciphered, perhaps with some additional form of encryption, but it would be great to get some more knowledgable info on this (I am struggling to find the info I need in the documentation).
     Any help would be greatly appreciated and aid me in making a better informed decision.
     Thank you in advance!
