SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the information that users submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they enter their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your Internet site and shall make it more appealing to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, which is normally required for the SSL installation. In case you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the money, you could avoid the added 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 Website Hosting

You can use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each website hosting package that we offer and irrespective if the SSL is ordered through us or through a third-party company. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only will you be able to select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you could also select our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall do the installation for you within a matter of seconds and you will not need to do anything manually. The only difference between using a shared IP address 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 besides that, everything shall be exactly the same. With this feature you'll be able to protect the data of your customers and have a secure website without the extra expense for a dedicated IP address.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host an Internet site in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to preserve the data of your website visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with only several mouse clicks. You can pick this option in the SSL order wizard that you will find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even select the certificate to be installed for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to protect the info of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the data in any way. The only big difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site won't be accessible if you input the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain in the Internet browser address bar.
