SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the data which customers submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire products and services online and they enter their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the safety of your site and will make it more attractive to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's usually needed for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the capital, you could avoid the added expense by making use of our services due to the fact 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 could use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with each cloud hosting package which we offer and irrespective if the SSL is acquired through us or through a third-party company. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only could you select 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 shall handle the installation for you within a couple of seconds and you won't have to do anything personally. The one difference between using a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your website will not appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but other than that, everything shall be identical. With this function you could protect the info of your customers and have a reliable Internet site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP address.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

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