SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the info that clients submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and products online and they type in their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your Internet site and shall make it more inviting to clients, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, which is usually needed for the SSL installation. In case you run 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 since our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting

A shared IP can be used for any SSL certificate, regardless if you buy it from our company or from a different vendor and regardless of the cloud web hosting service you have on our end. If you obtain the SSL through us, you'll discover this option on the certificate order page within your hosting CP where you could also take advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option we offer you. If the latter is selected in the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you through the specifically configured server shared IP address, so once you obtain and approve the SSL, there will not be anything else to do on your end. You could save the money you'll otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL shall function in the same exact way, so any info which the site visitors submit will be encoded. The one difference is that if you type the shared IP instead of your domain inside a web browser, the Internet site shall not appear.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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