SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the information that clients submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they input their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your website and shall make it more inviting to clients, but besides the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that is typically required for the SSL installation. If you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services since our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting

You could use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with each and every website hosting package we offer and regardless if the SSL is purchased through us or through a third-party business. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only can you pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also choose our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will install it for you within a couple of seconds and you won't have to do anything by hand. The one difference between using a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your website will not appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything shall be the same. With this feature you can protect the info of your customers and have a risk-free website without the extra expense for a dedicated IP address.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host a website within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to protect the data of your visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with just a couple of clicks. You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard which you shall find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even select the certificate to be set up for the given domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the opportunity to secure the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the information in any way. The one difference from using a dedicated address is that your site won't be accessible if you input the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain inside the web browser address bar.
