SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the information that users submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire goods and services online and they enter their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your Internet site and shall make it more attractive to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that's usually required for the SSL installation. If you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the capital, you could avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact 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 Cloud Hosting
A shared IP could be used for any SSL certificate, no matter if you get it from our company or from another dealer and regardless of the cloud hosting package you have on our end. If you obtain the SSL from us, you shall find this option on the certificate order page within your hosting Control Panel where you can also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option we offer. If the latter is selected within the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you using the specially configured server shared IP, so once you obtain and approve the SSL, there will not be anything else to do on your end. You could save the money you will otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL shall work in the same exact way, so any data that the visitors submit shall be encrypted. The only difference is that if you input the shared IP instead of your domain name within a web browser, the website won't display.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host a website in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to preserve the info of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with a couple of mouse clicks. You can pick this option in the SSL order wizard which you will find inside the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even select the certificate to be installed for the specific 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 preserve the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the info in any way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that your site shall not accessible if you enter the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain inside the browser address bar.
