SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the data which clients submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy goods and services online and they enter their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your website and will make it more appealing to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, which is typically needed for the SSL installation. If you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the funds, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by making use of our services due to the fact 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 Web Hosting

A shared IP can be employed for any SSL certificate, no matter if you acquire it from us or from another dealer and regardless of the shared web hosting service you have on our end. If you acquire the SSL through us, you shall discover this option on the certificate order page within your hosting Control Panel where you could also take advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option we offer you. If the latter is picked within the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you via the specially configured server shared IP address, thus once you acquire and approve the SSL, there shall not be anything else to do on your end. You could save the money you'll otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL shall work in the same exact way, so any data that the site visitors submit shall be encoded. The one difference is that if you type the shared IP instead of your domain within a web browser, the Internet site shall not display.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host an Internet site within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to preserve the data of your site visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with only several mouse clicks. You can select this option inside the SSL order wizard that you shall find inside the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even select the certificate to be set up for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the chance to protect the data of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the info in any way. The sole main difference from using a dedicated address is that your site shall not accessible if you input the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain in the Internet browser address bar.
