SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the data that users 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 hosting server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your site and shall make it more inviting to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, which is normally required for the SSL installation. If you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the capital, you could avoid the extra expense by making use of our services as 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 Cloud Hosting

Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting solutions, you can easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with only a few clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, therefore if you have a dedicated IP address, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for such a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the one difference will be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your Internet site. Due to the fact that our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically the instant it's issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you could have a secure and reliable website without having to spend extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host an Internet site within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to preserve the information of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with several mouse clicks. You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard which you will find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even choose the certificate to be set up for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the opportunity to secure the info of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the info in any way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that your website will not be accessible if you type the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
