SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the info that users submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire goods and services online and they enter their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your Internet site and will make it more appealing to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's usually needed for the SSL installation. If you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the money, you can avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services given that our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting

You could use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each and every web hosting plan that we offer and regardless if the SSL is ordered through us or through a third-party business. If the SSL is bought on our end, not only will you be able to select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also select our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall set it up for you within a couple of seconds and you'll not have to do anything yourself. The sole difference between using a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your website 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 will be the same. With this function you could protect the info of your clients and have a secure site without the extra expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host an Internet site in a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you would like to protect the info of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with a couple of mouse clicks. You can select this option in the SSL order wizard that you shall find inside the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even select the certificate to be installed for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to protect the data of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the data in any way. The sole difference from using a dedicated address is that your website won't be accessible if you enter the shared IP address as opposed to the domain/subdomain within the Internet browser address bar.
