SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the info that customers submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase goods and services online and they input their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your Internet site and shall make it more attractive to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's normally needed for the SSL installation. If you have 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'll be able to avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services since our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting

You could use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every single cloud hosting solution we offer and no matter if the SSL is bought through us or through a third-party company. If the SSL is bought on our end, not only can you choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also choose 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 couple of seconds and you won't have to do anything by hand. The one difference between using a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your site will not appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but apart from that, everything will be exactly the same. With this function you can protect the info of your clients and have a risk-free website without the extra expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host a site in a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you would like to secure the information of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with only a couple of clicks. You can choose this option in the SSL order wizard which you'll find inside 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. In this way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the chance to preserve the data of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the information in any way. The one big difference from using a dedicated address is that your website won't be accessible if you input the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain in the Internet browser address bar.
