SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the data which users submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire goods and services online and they enter their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your Internet site and will make it more attractive to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is 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 could find much better use for the capital, you can avoid the additional expense by making use 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 Web Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with each web hosting solution which we offer and regardless if the SSL is bought through us or through a third-party vendor. If the SSL is obtained on our end, not only could you pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also choose our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will do the installation for you within a few seconds and you will not have to do anything personally. The only difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your Internet site will not appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but other than that, everything will be identical. With this feature you'll be able to protect the data of your clients and have a risk-free Internet site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host a site in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to secure the info of your website visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can pick this option in the SSL order wizard that you'll find within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even select the certificate to be installed for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can 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 encode the information in any way. The one difference from using a dedicated address is that your website will not be accessible if you type the shared IP address as opposed to the domain/subdomain in the web browser address bar.
