SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the data that clients submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase goods and services online and they input their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, hence 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 attractive to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that is normally required for the SSL installation. If you have a small 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 can avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting
You could use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each and every shared hosting plan which we offer and no matter if the SSL is bought through our company or through a third-party business. If the SSL is bought on our end, not only could you choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also choose our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will handle the installation for you within a matter of seconds and you will not have to do anything manually. The sole difference between using a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your website won't appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but other than that, everything shall be identical. With this feature you can protect the data of your customers and have a reliable website without the extra expense for a dedicated IP address.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host a website within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to preserve the information of your visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with just a few mouse clicks. You can choose this option in the SSL order wizard that you shall find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even choose the certificate to be installed for the particular domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the chance to protect the info of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the information in any way. The sole difference from using a dedicated address is that your website won't be accessible if you input the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain in the Internet browser address bar.
