SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the info which customers submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they purchase goods and services online and they enter their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your site and shall make it more appealing to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually required for the SSL installation. If you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the capital, you could avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that our cloud website 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

A shared IP can be used for any SSL certificate, irrespective if you acquire it from us or from another dealer and regardless of the cloud web hosting plan which you have on our end. If you get the SSL through us, you'll discover this option on the certificate order page within your hosting Control Panel where you can also take advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option we offer you. If the latter is selected in the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you using the specifically configured server shared IP address, thus once you buy and approve the SSL, there will not be anything else to do on your end. You could save the money that you will otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL shall work in the same exact way, so any data which the visitors submit shall be encoded. The only difference is that if you type the shared IP address instead of your domain name within an Internet browser, the website shall not show up.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host an Internet site within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you wish to protect the information of your visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with only several mouse clicks. You can choose this option within the SSL order wizard that you will find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even select the certificate to be installed for the given domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the chance to secure the data of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the information in any way. The one big difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site won't be accessible if you enter the shared IP address as opposed to the domain/subdomain within the browser address bar.
