SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the info that clients submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and products online and they enter their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your website and shall make it more appealing to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that is normally 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 could find better use for the capital, you can avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services since 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 Shared Hosting

Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting packages, you can easily secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with only several clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you could use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this kind of a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been set up particularly for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference will be that if somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your Internet site. Given that our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically as soon as it is issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you can have a secure and trustworthy site without spending more money for that.

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 secure the data of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can pick this option inside the SSL order wizard which you'll find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even select the certificate to be installed for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the chance to preserve the information of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the data in any way. The only main difference from using a dedicated address is that your website shall not accessible if you input the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain within the browser address bar.
