SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the information that customers submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy products and services online and they input their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your website and shall make it more appealing to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that's typically needed for the SSL installation. In case you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the funds, you'll be able to avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services since 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 Cloud Web Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every single cloud web hosting package which we offer and regardless if the SSL is ordered through us or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is bought on our end, not only can you select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also choose our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will handle the installation for you within a couple of seconds and you will not have to do anything manually. The only difference between using a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your Internet site won't appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything will be exactly the same. With this feature you could protect the information of your customers and have a secure site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

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