If you want to protect the data that visitors submit on your site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol used to encode any data exchanged between a site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the actual content, thus if you have a login form of some type or you offer services and products online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the information is protected. Usually a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional expense may matter in case you run a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not generate a big revenue, so to save you the cash, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting

As we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting solutions, you can easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with just several clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for this type of a service, you could use the shared IP, which has been configured specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the one difference shall be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your Internet site. Given that our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically the moment it's issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you could have a protected and reliable website without having to spend extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host an Internet site inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to preserve the information of your visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with only a few clicks. You can select this option in the SSL order wizard that you will find within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even select the certificate to be installed for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the opportunity to protect the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the information in any way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that your site won't be accessible if you input the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain in the Internet browser address bar.
