SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the information that customers submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and goods online and they input their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your Internet site and shall make it more attractive to customers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's usually needed for the SSL installation. In case you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the money, you could avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services as 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 Hosting
A shared IP can be used for any SSL certificate, irrespective if you buy it from our company or from a different retailer and regardless of the shared hosting package that you have on our end. If you get the SSL from us, you'll find this option on the certificate order page in your hosting Control Panel where you can also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option we offer. If the latter is chosen within the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you through the specially configured server shared IP address, so once you buy and approve the SSL, there won't be anything else to do on your end. You can save the cash that you'll otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL will work in the exact same way, so any info which the website visitors submit shall be encrypted. The only difference is that if you enter the shared IP instead of your domain name inside a browser, the Internet site won't show up.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host a website within 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 address which has been configured for SSL certificates with only several clicks. You can choose this option inside the SSL order wizard that you'll find inside the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even select the certificate to be installed for the specific domain name 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 website 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 Internet site shall not accessible if you enter the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
