SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the data which customers submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire goods and services online and they input their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your Internet site and shall make it more attractive to clients, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that's usually required for the SSL installation. In case you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the money, you can avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact 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 Web Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each cloud web hosting plan that we offer and no matter if the SSL is obtained through us or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only will you be able to pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also choose our auto-configuration option, so when you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall install it for you within a few seconds and you will not have to do anything by hand. The sole difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your website won't appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but apart from that, everything shall be exactly the same. With this feature you can protect the info of your clients and have a risk-free website without the extra expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host a site inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you wish to protect the data of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with just several mouse clicks. You can select this option in the SSL order wizard that you will find in the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even pick the certificate to be installed for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the opportunity to secure the information of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the info in any way. The one difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site shall not accessible if you input the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain within the browser address bar.
