SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the info which customers submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire products and services online and they input their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the 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 website and shall make it more inviting to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, which is usually required for the SSL installation. If you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services as our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each and every cloud web hosting package we offer and regardless if the SSL is acquired through us or through a third-party vendor. 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 select our auto-configuration option, so when you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will do the installation for you within a couple of seconds and you'll not need to do anything manually. The one difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your website will not appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but besides that, everything will be exactly the same. With this function you could protect the info of your clients and have a risk-free site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host a site in a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you would like to protect the info of your site visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with several mouse clicks. You can select this option within the SSL order wizard that you'll find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even choose the certificate to be installed for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the chance to preserve the data of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the information in any way. The one main difference from using a dedicated address is that your website will not be accessible if you enter the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain in the Internet browser address bar.
