SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the information which users submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they enter their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your website and shall make it more appealing to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, which is usually needed for the SSL installation. If you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the funds, you can avoid the extra expense by making use of our services given that 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 each shared hosting solution which we offer and regardless if the SSL is acquired through us or through a third-party company. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only could you select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you could also pick our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall handle the installation for you within a few seconds and you'll not need to do anything manually. The sole difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your website will not appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but besides that, everything shall be identical. With this function you could protect the data of your customers and have a risk-free Internet site without the added expense for a dedicated IP address.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host an Internet site in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to protect the info of your visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with just several clicks. You can select this option within the SSL order wizard that you shall find inside the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even pick the certificate to be set up for the given domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to preserve the data of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the data in any way. The only main difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site shall not accessible if you enter the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain inside the Internet browser address bar.
