SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the info that customers submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they enter their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your Internet site and shall make it more attractive to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's normally required for the SSL installation. In case you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the funds, you could avoid the additional expense by making use of our services since our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting

You can use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each shared web hosting solution that we offer and regardless if the SSL is purchased through us or through a third-party vendor. If the SSL is obtained on our end, not only can you pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also choose our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will do the installation for you within a couple of seconds and you'll not have to do anything manually. The sole difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your site will not appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but besides that, everything shall be exactly the same. With this function you'll be able to protect the info of your customers and have a secure website without the additional expense for a dedicated IP address.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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