SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the info which clients submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they type in their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your website and will make it more inviting to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that is normally required for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the funds, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by making use of our services due to the fact that our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting

A shared IP could be employed for any SSL certificate, no matter if you acquire it from our company or from some other dealer and regardless of the web hosting service you have on our end. If you acquire the SSL from us, you shall come across this option on the certificate order page in your hosting CP where you can also take full advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option we offer you. If the latter is chosen inside the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you through the specially configured server shared IP, so once you buy and approve the SSL, there shall not be anything else to do on your end. You'll be able to save the cash you'll otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL will do the job in the same exact way, so any information which the site visitors submit shall be encrypted. The sole difference is that if you input the shared IP instead of your domain in a browser, the website won't appear.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host a site inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you'd like to preserve the info of your site visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with just several mouse clicks. You can select this option inside the SSL order wizard that you shall find within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even pick the certificate to be set up for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to protect the data of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the information in any way. The one difference from using a dedicated address is that your website won't be accessible if you enter the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain within the web browser address bar.
