SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the data which customers submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they buy goods and services online and they enter their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your Internet site and will make it more inviting to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that's typically required for the SSL installation. If you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited 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 added expense by making use of our services due to the fact that our cloud web 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 address for an SSL certificate with every hosting package which we offer and irrespective if the SSL is obtained through us or through a third-party company. If the SSL is obtained on our end, not only will you be able to select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you could also pick our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall handle the installation for you within a few seconds and you won't have to do anything manually. The one difference between using 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 rather than https://your-domain-name, but apart from that, everything shall be identical. With this feature you can protect the info of your customers and have a reliable website without the extra expense for a dedicated IP address.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host a site inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you would like to secure the data of your visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with just a few clicks. You can choose this option inside the SSL order wizard that you'll find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even select the certificate to be installed for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP as soon as 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 encrypt the information in any way. The sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site won't be accessible if you enter the shared IP address as opposed to the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
