SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the information that clients submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire goods and services online and they type in their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your website and shall make it more inviting to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually required for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the funds, you can avoid the extra expense by making use of our services as 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 Hosting

You can use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every hosting package that we offer and no matter if the SSL is bought through us or through a third-party vendor. If the SSL is obtained on our end, not only will you be able to pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you could also choose our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall set it up for you within a couple of seconds and you'll not have to do anything manually. The one difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your website won't appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but apart from that, everything will be identical. With this function you could protect the info of your clients and have a risk-free site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host an Internet site inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to secure the data of your visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with a few mouse clicks. You can pick this option inside the SSL order wizard which you shall find inside the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even choose the certificate to be installed for the particular domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the opportunity to secure the info of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the info 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 address rather than the domain/subdomain within the Internet browser address bar.
