SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the info which customers submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and goods online and they enter their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your site and shall make it more inviting to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually needed for the SSL installation. If you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the funds, you could avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services as 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 can use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with every single cloud web hosting package which we offer and no matter if the SSL is obtained through us or through a third-party vendor. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only will you be able to pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also pick 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 need to do anything manually. The sole difference between using a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your site will not appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything shall be identical. With this feature you'll be able to protect the data of your customers and have a risk-free Internet site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP address.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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