SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the data that customers submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and goods online and they enter their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your website and will make it more inviting to clients, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend more money for a dedicated IP address, which is typically needed for the SSL installation. If you have a modest 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 capital, you'll be able to avoid the added expense by making use of our services since our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting

A shared IP could be used for any SSL certificate, no matter if you buy it from our company or from a different vendor and regardless of the cloud hosting package you have on our end. If you get the SSL through us, you shall come across this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting CP where you could also take full advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option which we offer you. If the latter is chosen inside the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you through the specifically configured server shared IP address, thus once you acquire and approve the SSL, there will not be anything else to do on your end. You'll be able to save the funds that you will otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL shall function in the same exact way, so any data the website visitors submit will be encoded. The one difference is that if you input the shared IP instead of your domain name inside an Internet browser, the website will not show up.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host a site within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to preserve the info of your website visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with a few clicks. You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard that you'll find in the Hepsia hosting CP 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 give you the opportunity to protect the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the information in any way. The only big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site won't be accessible if you input the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain inside the web browser address bar.
