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 buy products and services online and they input their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your site and will make it more inviting to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's typically required for the SSL installation. If you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the capital, you can avoid the extra expense by making use of our services as our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Hosting

You could use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with every single hosting package which we offer and no matter if the SSL is bought through us or through a third-party business. If the SSL is obtained on our end, not only can you choose 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 set it up for you within a matter of seconds and you won't need to do anything by hand. The only difference between using a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your site 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 will be the same. With this feature you can protect the information of your customers and have a risk-free site without the extra expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host an Internet site in a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you would like to secure the info of your visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with only several mouse clicks. You can select this option within the SSL order wizard that you shall find within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even choose the certificate to be installed for the given domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this 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 data of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the data in any way. The one big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site shall not accessible if you input the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain within the browser address bar.
