If you want to protect the info that visitors submit on your site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encrypt any information exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any information, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the actual content, thus if you have a login form of some kind or you offer goods and services online and customers submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the info is protected. Usually a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional expense may matter if you run a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't make a big revenue, so to save you the cash, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting

As we offer SSL certificates with our shared web hosting packages, you can easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with only a couple of mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, so if you have a dedicated IP, you'll be able to use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for such a service, you could use the shared IP, that has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the one difference will be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your Internet site. Given that our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically once it's issued, so you will not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you could have a protected and trustworthy website without spending extra cash for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host a site within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you'd like to protect the data of your website visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with only a couple of clicks. You can choose this option in the SSL order wizard that you shall find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even pick the certificate to be set up for the given domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to preserve 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 only big difference from using a dedicated address is that your website shall not accessible if you type the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain inside the Internet browser address bar.
