SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the information which customers submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they input their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your website and will make it more inviting to clients, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, which is normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the capital, you could avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services given that 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 Website Hosting

A shared IP can be employed for any SSL certificate, regardless if you buy it from us or from another dealer and regardless of the cloud website hosting service you have on our end. If you get the SSL from us, you will come across this option on the certificate order page in your hosting CP where you could also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option that we offer you. If the latter is chosen in the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you via the specifically configured server shared IP, so once you buy and approve the SSL, there won't be anything else to do on your end. You can save the funds you'll otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL will work in the same exact way, so any data that the site visitors submit will be encrypted. The only difference is that if you enter the shared IP address instead of your domain in a browser, the site won't show up.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host a website inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you wish to preserve the information of your website visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can select this option in the SSL order wizard which you'll find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even choose the certificate to be set up for the given domain or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the opportunity to protect the information of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the information in any way. The one difference from using a dedicated address is that your site shall not accessible if you type the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain within the Internet browser address bar.
