SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the data which customers submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they type in their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your website and shall make it more appealing to clients, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually required for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the funds, you could avoid the added expense by making use of our services since 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 Hosting

A shared IP can be employed for any SSL certificate, regardless if you acquire it from our company or from another vendor and regardless of the cloud hosting service which you have on our end. If you get the SSL from us, you shall come across this option on the certificate order page in your hosting CP where you could also take advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option which we offer. If the latter is picked inside the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you using the specifically configured server shared IP, thus once you obtain and approve the SSL, there will not be anything else to do on your end. You'll be able to save the cash you will otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL will work in the exact same way, so any info that the visitors submit shall be encrypted. The one difference is that if you input the shared IP instead of your domain inside a web browser, the website will not display.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host a site within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to preserve the info of your visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can pick this option inside the SSL order wizard that you shall find in 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 can be set up for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the chance to preserve the info of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the information in any way. The only big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site shall not accessible if you input the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
