SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the data which customers submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they purchase goods and services online and they enter their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your website and shall make it more attractive to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that's usually required for the SSL installation. In case 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 far better use for the funds, you can avoid the added 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 Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each and every hosting solution we offer and regardless if the SSL is acquired through us or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only can you select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also select our auto-configuration option, so when you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will handle the installation for you within a few seconds and you'll not need to do anything manually. The one difference between using a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your Internet site will not appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but apart from that, everything will be the same. With this feature you could protect the info of your customers and have a reliable site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host a site inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to secure the info of your visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with just a few mouse clicks. You can choose this option inside the SSL order wizard which you shall find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even choose the certificate to be installed for the given domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the chance to preserve the data of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the info in any way. The one main difference from using a dedicated address is that your website won't be accessible if you enter the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain in the Internet browser address bar.
