SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the data which customers submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they buy products and services online and they type in their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your site and will make it more inviting to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's normally required for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the funds, you can avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services as our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting

You can use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each shared web hosting package that we offer and irrespective if the SSL is acquired through us or through a third-party company. If the SSL is bought on our end, not only will you be able to select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also pick our auto-configuration option, so when you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall handle the installation for you within a matter of seconds and you won't need to do anything by hand. The one difference between using a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your website will not appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but other than that, everything shall be identical. With this function you could protect the info of your clients and have a reliable Internet site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP address.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host an Internet site in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to secure the data of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with a few mouse clicks. You can pick this option in the SSL order wizard which you will find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even choose the certificate to be set up for the given domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the chance to protect the information of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the data in any way. The only big difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site shall not accessible if you enter the shared IP address as opposed to the domain/subdomain inside the web browser address bar.
