SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the information which clients submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and products online and they type in their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your website and shall make it more attractive to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, which is normally needed for the SSL installation. If you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services given that our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting

You can use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every cloud hosting solution which we offer and no matter if the SSL is bought through us or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is bought on our end, not only can you select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also pick our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will set it up for you within a few seconds and you'll not have to do anything by hand. The one difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your Internet site will not appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but other than that, everything will be the same. With this function you could protect the data of your customers and have a secure site without the extra expense for a dedicated IP address.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host a site inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you'd like to preserve the information of your visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can choose this option inside the SSL order wizard which you'll find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even choose the certificate to be installed for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the chance to secure 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 one main difference from using a dedicated address is that your site won't be accessible if you enter the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain within the Internet browser address bar.
