SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the data that clients submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and products online and they enter their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your site and will make it more attractive to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that's typically needed for the SSL installation. If you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services as our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Website Hosting

A shared IP can be used for any SSL certificate, irrespective if you acquire it from us or from another vendor and regardless of the cloud website hosting plan you have on our end. If you acquire the SSL through us, you'll 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 that we offer. If the latter is selected inside the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you using the specifically configured server shared IP, thus once you buy and approve the SSL, there won't be anything else to do on your end. You could save the funds you will otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL will work in the exact same way, so any data which the site visitors submit will be encoded. The only difference is that if you type the shared IP instead of your domain name within a browser, the Internet site won't display.

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 info of your website visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with just several clicks. You can select this option inside the SSL order wizard that you shall find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even choose the certificate to be installed for the specific domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the opportunity to secure the data of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the data in any way. The only main difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site won't be accessible if you type the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain within the browser address bar.
