SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the information which customers submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and products online and they type in their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your site and shall make it more inviting to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that is typically required for the SSL installation. In case you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the funds, you'll be able to avoid the added expense by making use of our services as our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with every single web hosting solution which we offer and no matter if the SSL is acquired through our company or through a third-party company. If the SSL is obtained on our end, not only could you select 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 shall handle the installation for you within a few seconds and you'll not have to do anything yourself. The sole difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your website won't appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything shall be identical. With this function you could protect the info of your customers and have a reliable site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP address.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host a website in a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you would like to protect the data of your visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with a couple of clicks. You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard which you will find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even choose the certificate to be set up for the given domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the chance to secure the data of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the data in any way. The only main difference from using a dedicated address is that your website shall not accessible if you enter the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
