SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the information which customers submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy goods and services online and they type in their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the security of your site and shall make it more inviting to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's normally required for the SSL installation. In case you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the capital, you can avoid the extra expense by making use 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 Web Hosting

Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our shared web hosting plans, you can easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with just several mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, thus if you have a dedicated IP address, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this kind of a service, you can 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 shall be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your website. Given that our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically the instant it's issued, so you'll not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you could have a protected and trustworthy site without having to spend more money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host a website in a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you wish to protect the information of your visitors, you will 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 inside the SSL order wizard that you will find within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even pick the certificate to be set up for the given domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the opportunity to secure the info of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the data in any way. The one main difference from using a dedicated address is that your site will not be accessible if you type the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain inside the browser address bar.
