SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the data that customers submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they purchase goods and services online and they enter their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your website and shall make it more inviting to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that's typically needed for the SSL installation. If you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the money, you could avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that 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

Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud website hosting solutions, you can easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with just a couple of clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, hence if you have a dedicated IP address, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this type of a service, you could use the shared IP, that has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference will be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your website. Since our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically the instant it's issued, so you shall not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you can have a protected and reliable site without having to spend more money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host a website inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you would like to preserve the info of your site visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with only a few mouse clicks. You can pick this option in the SSL order wizard that you will find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even choose the certificate to be set up for the given domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the opportunity to protect the info of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the info in any way. The sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site shall not accessible if you input the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain inside the browser address bar.
