SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the information that customers submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and products online and they type in their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the security of your Internet site and shall make it more attractive to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, which is typically needed for the SSL installation. In case you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the funds, you can avoid the additional expense by making use 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 Hosting
As we offer SSL certificates with our hosting solutions, you can effortlessly secure your website and use a shared IP address with just several mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for this kind 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 and the one difference will be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your website. Given that our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically the moment it is issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you could have a secure and reliable site without spending more money 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 preserve the data of your website visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with a couple of mouse clicks. You can select this option within the SSL order wizard which you will find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even choose the certificate to be set up for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the opportunity to protect the data of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the info in any way. The sole difference from using a dedicated address is that your website shall not accessible if you type the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain inside the web browser address bar.
