SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the data which customers submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they enter their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the safety of your site and shall make it more attractive to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, which is usually needed for the SSL installation. In case you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the funds, you can avoid the extra expense by making use of our services since our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting

A shared IP could be employed for any SSL certificate, regardless if you buy it from our company or from some other retailer and regardless of the website hosting package you have on our end. If you obtain the SSL through us, you'll discover this option on the certificate order page in your hosting Control Panel where you could also take advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option we offer. If the latter is chosen inside the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you through the specially configured server shared IP address, therefore once you order and approve the SSL, there shall not be anything else to do on your end. You could save the funds that you will otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL shall do the job in the exact same way, so any info which the website visitors submit shall be encoded. The one difference is that if you type the shared IP instead of your domain name in a web browser, the site won't show up.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host an Internet site within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to protect the data of your site visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with just several clicks. You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard that you will find inside the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even select the certificate to be set up for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the opportunity to protect the info of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the data in any way. The one difference from using a dedicated address is that your site won't be accessible if you input the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain in the Internet browser address bar.
