If you wish to protect the info that visitors submit on your Internet site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol employed to encode any data exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any information, 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 authentic content, therefore if you have a login form of some sort or you offer services and products online and customers submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the information is secure. Typically a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter when you manage a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not make a big revenue, so to save you the money, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting

Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our shared web hosting plans, you can easily secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just a few mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, thus if you have a dedicated IP, 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 can use the shared IP, that has been configured specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the one difference will be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your website. Due to the fact that our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically the moment it is issued, so you shall not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you'll be able to have a risk-free and trustworthy site without having to spend extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host an Internet site inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you'd like to preserve the data of your website visitors, you shall 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'll find in the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even select the certificate to be installed for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the chance to protect the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the info in any way. The only main difference from using a dedicated address is that your site will not be accessible if you enter the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain within the browser address bar.
