SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the data which users submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and goods online and they type in their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your Internet site and shall make it more appealing to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's typically required for the SSL installation. In case you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the money, you could avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services as our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting
Given that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting packages, you can very easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with only a few clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, therefore if you have a dedicated IP address, you could use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for such a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, that has been set up particularly for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference will be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your Internet site. As our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically once it is issued, so you will not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you can have a protected and reliable website without spending extra money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host an Internet site in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to protect the info of your site visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with a few mouse clicks. You can choose this option within the SSL order wizard which you will find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even select the certificate to be installed for the particular domain 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 give you the opportunity to protect the data of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the info in any way. The sole main difference from using a dedicated address is that your website shall not accessible if you input the shared IP address as opposed to the domain/subdomain within the browser address bar.
