SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the information that customers submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they enter their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your Internet site and shall make it more inviting to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that is normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services given that our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting

A shared IP can be used for any SSL certificate, regardless if you buy it from us or from some other seller and regardless of the shared hosting service which you have on our end. If you get the SSL from us, you will find this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting Control Panel where you could also take advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option that we offer. If the latter is selected inside the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you through the specially configured server shared IP, therefore once you order and approve the SSL, there shall not be anything else to do on your end. You can save the cash you will otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL will do the job in the exact same way, so any data which the site visitors submit will be encoded. The sole difference is that if you type the shared IP instead of your domain inside a web browser, the Internet site shall not display.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host a website in a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you'd like to secure the info of your visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with only several mouse clicks. You can select this option within the SSL order wizard that you will find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even choose 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 the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to protect the info of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the info in any way. The only main difference from using a dedicated address is that your website won't be accessible if you input the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain within the browser address bar.
