SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the data that clients submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and products online and they type in their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your website and will make it more appealing to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that is typically needed for the SSL installation. If you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the funds, you could avoid the added expense by taking advantage 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 Cloud Hosting

A shared IP could be used for any SSL certificate, no matter if you acquire it from us or from another seller and regardless of the cloud hosting service that you have on our end. If you get the SSL through us, you will come across this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting CP where you could also take advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option that we offer you. If the latter is selected in the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you via the specially configured server shared IP, so once you acquire and approve the SSL, there will not be anything else to do on your end. You could save the money you'll otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL shall do the job in the exact same way, so any data that the site visitors submit shall be encoded. The sole difference is that if you enter the shared IP instead of your domain in a web browser, the website will not display.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host a site inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like 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 only a couple of clicks. You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard that you will find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even select the certificate to be set up for the particular domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the chance to preserve the information of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the info in any way. The only main difference from using a dedicated address is that your site will not be accessible if you input the shared IP address as opposed to the domain/subdomain in the Internet browser address bar.
