SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the info that customers submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and goods online and they input their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your site and shall make it more appealing to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that is typically 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 far better use for the capital, you can avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting

Since we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting solutions, you can very easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with just a couple of clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, therefore if you have a dedicated IP address, you'll be able to use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for such a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate will work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference will be that if anyone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your Internet site. As our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically as soon as it is issued, so you will not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you could have a secure and trustworthy website without spending extra cash for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host an Internet site within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you would like to secure the data of your site visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with a few clicks. You can pick this option in the SSL order wizard which you will find within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even pick the certificate to be installed for the given domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the chance to preserve the info of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the data in any way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site will not be accessible if you type the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
