If you want to protect the information that visitors submit on your website, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encrypt any data exchanged between a site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the real content, therefore if you have a login form of some sort or you offer services and goods online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the info is secure. Normally 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 online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not make a big income, so to save you the money, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting

You can use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every website hosting solution which we offer and regardless if the SSL is ordered through our company or through a third-party company. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only will you be able to choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also pick our auto-configuration option, so when you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall set it up for you within a few seconds and you won't have to do anything manually. The sole difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your Internet site won't appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but other than that, everything shall be the same. With this function you can protect the information of your clients and have a reliable website without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host a website within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you wish to secure the info of your site visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can choose this option within the SSL order wizard that you'll find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even pick the certificate to be installed for the given domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the opportunity to secure the data of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the info in any way. The one main difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site shall not accessible if you type the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain within the Internet browser address bar.
