SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the information which users submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they input their credit card info, the data will 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 heighten the security of your Internet site and will make it more inviting to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that's typically required for the SSL installation. If you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by making use of our services given that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting
Given that we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting solutions, you can very easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with just several clicks. The option will be available during the order process, therefore if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this type of a service, you could use the shared IP, that has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference will be that if somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your site. Due to the fact that our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically as soon as it is issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you can have a secure and reliable site without spending extra money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host an Internet site in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to protect the information of your visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with just several clicks. You can choose this option inside the SSL order wizard that you will find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even choose the certificate to be set up for the specific domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the opportunity to protect the data of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the information in any way. The one main difference from using a dedicated address is that your website won't be accessible if you input the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain within the browser address bar.
