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

Shared SSL IP in Shared Website Hosting

As we offer SSL certificates with our shared website hosting plans, you can very easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with just several clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, therefore if you have a dedicated IP, you could use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for this type of a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference shall be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your website. Since our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically the instant it is issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you could have a risk-free and reliable site without having to spend extra cash for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host a website in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish 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 just a few clicks. You can pick this option in the SSL order wizard which you shall find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even pick the certificate to be installed for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the opportunity to preserve the info of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the information in any way. The one big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site will not be accessible if you enter the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain inside the web browser address bar.
