SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the info that clients submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy goods and services online and they enter their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your Internet site and shall make it more inviting to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that is typically needed for the SSL installation. If you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the capital, you can avoid the extra expense by making use of our services given that our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting

As we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting packages, you can very easily secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with only a few mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order process, hence if you have a dedicated IP address, you could use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for such a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been configured especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the one difference shall be that if anyone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your site. As our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically once it's issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you could have a protected and trustworthy Internet site without having to spend more money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host an Internet site within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to secure the data of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with just a couple of clicks. You can pick this option in the SSL order wizard that you'll find inside the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even choose the certificate to be installed for the particular domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the chance to secure the data of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the information in any way. The only big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site won't be accessible if you enter the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain in the web browser address bar.
