SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the info which clients submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they input their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your site and will make it more attractive to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend more money for a dedicated IP address, which is typically required for the SSL installation. In case you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services as 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 could be employed for any SSL certificate, regardless if you get it from us or from a different seller and regardless of the shared web hosting package which you have on our end. If you get the SSL through us, you shall discover this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting Control Panel where you can also take full advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option we offer. If the latter is selected inside the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you via the specifically configured server shared IP, so once you acquire and approve the SSL, there will not be anything else to do on your end. You can save the funds you'll otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL will do the job in the exact same way, so any data which the site visitors submit will be encrypted. The one difference is that if you type the shared IP instead of your domain name in a browser, the site won't appear.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host a website in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to protect the information of your site visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with several mouse clicks. You can choose this option within the SSL order wizard that you shall find in the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even select the certificate to be set up for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the opportunity to protect the information of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the information in any way. The sole difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site will not be accessible if you type the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain inside the browser address bar.
