If you would like to protect the info that visitors submit on your website, you need 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 ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any data, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the real content, and so if you have a login form of some sort or you offer products and services online and clients submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the information is secure. Normally a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional cost may matter when you run a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't make a big revenue, so to save you the funds, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting
You could use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every website hosting solution which we offer and no matter if the SSL is purchased through us or through a third-party vendor. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only can you pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also choose our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will do the installation for you within a matter of seconds and you will not have to do anything personally. The sole difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your site won't appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything will be the same. With this feature you'll be able to protect the data of your clients and have a secure site without the extra expense for a dedicated IP address.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host an Internet site within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to preserve the data of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with a few clicks. You can choose this option within the SSL order wizard that you'll find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even choose the certificate to be set up for the given domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to secure the information of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the data in any way. The sole difference from using a dedicated address is that your site will not be accessible if you enter the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain inside the browser address bar.
