SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the information that customers submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire products and services online and they enter their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your website and will make it more appealing to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that's usually needed for the SSL installation. In case you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the additional 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 Cloud Web Hosting

A shared IP could be used for any SSL certificate, regardless if you purchase it from our company or from some other vendor and regardless of the cloud web hosting service which you have on our end. If you acquire the SSL through us, you shall come across this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting CP where you can also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option we offer. If the latter is chosen in the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you through the specially configured server shared IP, therefore once you obtain and approve the SSL, there won't be anything else to do on your end. You'll be able to save the money you'll otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL shall work in the same exact way, so any info that the visitors submit shall be encoded. The sole difference is that if you type the shared IP address instead of your domain within a browser, the Internet site will not display.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host a site within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to secure the data of your site visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with only a couple of clicks. You can select this option inside the SSL order wizard which you will find inside the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even pick 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 as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the chance to protect the data of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the information in any way. The one big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site won't be accessible if you input the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain in the web browser address bar.
