SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the information which clients submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase goods and services online and they input their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your website and shall make it more appealing to clients, but besides the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that is typically required for the SSL installation. If you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the funds, you can avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting

Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting packages, you can quickly secure your site and use a shared IP address with just a couple of clicks. The option will be available during the order process, therefore if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this sort of a service, you could use the shared IP, which has been configured especially for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference will be that if anyone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your Internet site. As our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically as soon as it's issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you'll be able to have a protected and reliable website without having to spend more money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host a website inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to preserve the info of your website visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can pick this option in the SSL order wizard which you will find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even choose the certificate to be installed 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 minute you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the chance to preserve the data of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the information in any way. The only main difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site shall not accessible if you input the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
