SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the data that clients submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they type in their credit card details, 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 increase the security of your Internet site and will make it more inviting to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is typically needed for the SSL installation. In case you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services as 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 Hosting

A shared IP can be employed for any SSL certificate, no matter if you get it from us or from a different dealer and regardless of the hosting service which you have on our end. If you obtain the SSL from us, you will discover this option on the certificate order page within your hosting CP where you can also take advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option which we offer. If the latter is picked in the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you through the specially configured server shared IP address, thus once you acquire and approve the SSL, there shall not be anything else to do on your end. You could save the funds you will otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL will do the job in the exact same way, so any data the site visitors submit will be encrypted. The sole difference is that if you enter the shared IP address instead of your domain within a web browser, the website shall not show up.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host a website within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you'd like to preserve the info of your visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with a couple of clicks. You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard which you'll find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even select the certificate to be set up for the given domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to secure the info of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the information in any way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that your site will not be accessible if you enter the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain in the web browser address bar.
