SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the info which customers submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy goods and services online and they input their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your website and shall make it more attractive to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's normally needed for the SSL installation. If you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the capital, you can avoid the additional expense by making use of our services given that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting

You could use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with each and every website hosting solution we offer and irrespective if the SSL is bought through our company or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only can you select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you could also select our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall install it for you within a matter of seconds and you'll not have to do anything personally. The only difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your website will not appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but apart from that, everything shall be exactly the same. With this function you'll be able to protect the data of your clients and have a risk-free website without the added expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host a website in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to preserve the data of your site visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can choose this option within the SSL order wizard that you shall find inside the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even choose the certificate to be installed for the specific domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the chance to protect the info of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the data in any way. The only main difference from using a dedicated address is that your website shall not accessible if you type the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
