SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the data that users submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they input their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your Internet site and will make it more inviting to clients, but besides 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 restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the money, 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 Shared Website Hosting
You could use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every single shared website hosting package which we offer and regardless if the SSL is purchased through our company or through a third-party vendor. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only will you be able to pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also pick our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall handle the installation for you within a couple of seconds and you won't need to do anything by hand. The one difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your site will not appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything will be exactly the same. With this feature you can protect the information of your clients and have a reliable site without the added expense for a dedicated IP.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host a site within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you would like to secure the data of your site visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with only a few clicks. You can pick this option inside the SSL order wizard that you'll find in the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even pick the certificate to be set up for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the opportunity to secure the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the data in any way. The only big difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site won't be accessible if you input the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain in the Internet browser address bar.
