SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the data which clients submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they enter their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the security of your site and will make it more inviting to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that is usually needed for the SSL installation. If you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the capital, you can avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with each cloud web hosting solution which we offer and no matter if the SSL is purchased through our company or through a third-party vendor. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only could you choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you could also select our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall install it for you within a couple of seconds and you will not need to do anything manually. The one difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your website won't appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything shall be the same. With this feature you can protect the info of your customers and have a reliable website without the extra expense for a dedicated IP address.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host a site in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to protect the information of your visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with just a couple of mouse clicks. You can select this option within the SSL order wizard that you'll find in the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even choose the certificate to be installed for the given domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the chance to protect the info of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the information in any way. The only main difference from using a dedicated address is that your website won't be accessible if you input the shared IP address as opposed to the domain/subdomain in the Internet browser address bar.
