SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the information that customers submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase goods and services online and they input their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your website and will make it more appealing to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, which is normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small 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 extra expense by taking advantage 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 purchase it from our company or from another seller and regardless of the web hosting service that you have on our end. If you acquire the SSL through us, you shall find this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting Control Panel where you can also take advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option that we offer you. If the latter is chosen in the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you through the specially configured server shared IP, therefore once you obtain and approve the SSL, there will not be anything else to do on your end. You can save the funds that you will otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL will function in the exact same way, so any information that the site visitors submit will be encoded. The only difference is that if you input the shared IP instead of your domain within an Internet browser, the website won't show up.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host a website in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to preserve the info of your website visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with only a few mouse clicks. You can choose this option in the SSL order wizard that you'll find inside the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even choose the certificate to be installed for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to secure the information of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the information in any way. The one big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site shall not accessible if you type the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain within the Internet browser address bar.
