SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the information which clients submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they enter their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your website and shall make it more appealing to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's usually required for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the money, you can avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services as our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting

You could use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with every shared hosting plan which we offer and irrespective if the SSL is ordered through us or through a third-party business. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only will you be able to select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you could also pick our auto-configuration option, so when you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall do the installation for you within a matter of seconds and you will not need to do anything yourself. The only difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your site won't appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but besides that, everything shall be identical. With this feature you'll be able to protect the data of your customers and have a reliable Internet site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP address.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host a site inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to protect the info of your website visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with a few mouse clicks. You can select this option in the SSL order wizard which you shall find within 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 can be installed for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the opportunity to protect the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the info in any way. The one big difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site won't be accessible if you enter the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain within the browser address bar.
