SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the information that users 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 type in their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your site and shall make it more appealing to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually required for the SSL installation. If you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the funds, you can avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services as 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 Shared Web Hosting

Since we offer SSL certificates with our shared web hosting packages, you can easily secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just a few mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, hence if you have a dedicated IP address, you could use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for this sort of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, that has been configured specifically for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference will be that if somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your website. As our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically as soon as it is issued, so you shall not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you can have a secure and reliable site without spending extra cash for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host a site inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to protect the info of your site visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with just several clicks. You can select this option in the SSL order wizard which you'll find within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even choose the certificate to be set up for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the chance to secure the information of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the data in any way. The sole main difference from using a dedicated address is that your site will not be accessible if you enter the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain in the web browser address bar.
