SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the data which clients submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they enter their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your Internet site and shall make it more inviting to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually needed for the SSL installation. If you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the money, you can avoid the added expense by making use of our services due to the fact that 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 Cloud Hosting
Given that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting packages, you can effortlessly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with only several clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, thus if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for this sort of a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate will work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference shall be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your site. As our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the moment it's issued, so you will not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you can have a secure and trustworthy website without spending extra money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host a website within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you would like to secure the data of your site visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with several mouse clicks. You can choose this option in the SSL order wizard that you will find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even pick the certificate to be installed for the given domain or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything could 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 information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the information in any way. The sole main difference from using a dedicated address is that your site shall not accessible if you enter the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain inside the web browser address bar.
