SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the data which customers submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they enter their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your website and will make it more appealing to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that is normally needed for the SSL installation. If you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the funds, you can avoid the additional expense by making use of our services given that our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only 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 every cloud hosting package we offer and no matter if the SSL is bought through us or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only can you choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also pick our auto-configuration option, so when you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will install it for you within a couple of seconds and you will not need to do anything personally. The only difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your site won't appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but besides that, everything shall be identical. With this function you'll be able to protect the data of your customers and have a secure site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host an Internet site in a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you wish to protect the data of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with just a couple of 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 choose the certificate to be set up for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to protect the info of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the data in any way. The only big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site won't be accessible if you input the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain within the Internet browser address bar.
