SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the info that clients submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they purchase goods and services online and they type in their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your Internet site and will make it more attractive to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, which is normally required for the SSL installation. If you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the extra expense by making use 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 Cloud Hosting

A shared IP could be used for any SSL certificate, regardless if you get it from our company or from a different seller and regardless of the cloud hosting package you have on our end. If you acquire the SSL through us, you'll find this option on the certificate order page within your hosting CP where you can also take advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option that we offer you. If the latter is selected inside the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you via the specifically configured server shared IP address, thus once you obtain and approve the SSL, there won't be anything else to do on your end. You could save the money you'll otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL shall work in the exact same way, so any info that the site visitors submit shall be encrypted. The only difference is that if you input the shared IP address instead of your domain name inside an Internet browser, the Internet site shall not display.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host a site within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to preserve the information of your site visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with a few mouse clicks. You can pick this option in the SSL order wizard that you'll find inside the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even pick the certificate to be set up for the specific domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to protect the information of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the information in any way. The only big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site will not be accessible if you input the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain inside the browser address bar.
