SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the info that customers submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they input their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your website and will make it more inviting to clients, but besides the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, which is usually required 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 can find better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the extra expense by taking advantage 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 Shared Hosting
You can use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each and every shared hosting package that we offer and no matter if the SSL is purchased through us or through a third-party vendor. If the SSL is obtained on our end, not only could you pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you could also choose our auto-configuration option, so when you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will handle the installation for you within a few seconds and you won't need to do anything personally. The only difference between using a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your website won't appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything will be exactly the same. With this feature you could protect the info of your customers and have a reliable site without the added expense for a dedicated IP address.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host a website within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you would like to preserve the information 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 pick this option in the SSL order wizard which you shall find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even choose the certificate to be set up for the particular domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the chance to secure the information of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the data in any way. The one big difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site won't be accessible if you input the shared IP address as opposed to the domain/subdomain within the browser address bar.
