SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the info which users submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy goods and services online and they type in their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your Internet site and will make it more attractive to customers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, which is normally needed for the SSL installation. If you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the funds, you could avoid the extra expense by making use of our services given that our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting
A shared IP could be employed for any SSL certificate, irrespective if you acquire it from our company or from a different retailer and regardless of the cloud web hosting service which you have on our end. If you get the SSL from us, you shall find this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting Control Panel where you could also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option which we offer. If the latter is chosen in the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you using the specially configured server shared IP, so once you obtain and approve the SSL, there won't be anything else to do on your end. You could save the cash you'll otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL will do the job in the same exact way, so any data that the website visitors submit shall be encrypted. The sole difference is that if you input the shared IP instead of your domain in an Internet browser, the site shall not appear.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host a website within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you would like to protect the info of your visitors, you will 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 within the SSL order wizard that you will find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even pick the certificate to be set up for the given domain 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 chance to protect the data of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the information in any way. The sole main difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site will not be accessible if you enter the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain within the Internet browser address bar.
