SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the info that customers submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and products online and they type in their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your website and shall make it more attractive to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is normally needed 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 far better use for the capital, you can avoid the added 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 Web Hosting
You can use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every web hosting package that we offer and no matter if the SSL is acquired through us or through a third-party vendor. If the SSL is obtained on our end, not only can you choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you could also select our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will do the installation for you within a matter of seconds and you will not need to do anything personally. The only difference between using a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your Internet site won't appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but apart from that, everything will be the same. With this feature you can protect the information of your clients and have a reliable website without the additional expense for a dedicated IP address.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host a website in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to preserve the data of your website visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with just a couple of mouse clicks. You can select this option inside the SSL order wizard that you shall find within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even select the certificate to be installed for the specific domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the opportunity to secure the data of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the information in any way. The sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site will not be accessible if you input the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain inside the browser address bar.
