SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that 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 will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your website and shall make it more appealing to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's typically required for the SSL installation. If you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the funds, you'll be able to avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services given that our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting

You can use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every single cloud hosting plan which we offer and irrespective if the SSL is obtained through us or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only could you select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you could also pick our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall set it up for you within a few seconds and you won't have to do anything personally. The only difference between using a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your Internet site will not appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but apart from that, everything will be identical. With this function you'll be able to protect the info of your customers and have a secure website without the added expense for a dedicated IP address.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host a website in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to secure the info of your site visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with several mouse clicks. You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard which you shall find within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even select the certificate to be set up for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the chance to preserve the info of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the data in any way. The sole difference from using a dedicated address is that your website shall not accessible if you input the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain within the web browser address bar.
