SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the information which users submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they type in their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the safety of your site and shall make it more inviting to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that's usually needed for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the money, you could avoid the added expense by making use of our services as our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting

A shared IP could be used for any SSL certificate, regardless if you purchase it from our company or from some other vendor and regardless of the cloud hosting service that you have on our end. If you get the SSL through us, you shall find this option on the certificate order page within your hosting CP where you can also take full advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option we offer you. If the latter is picked inside the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you through the specially configured server shared IP address, so once you buy and approve the SSL, there won't be anything else to do on your end. You could save the money that you'll otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL will do the job in the same exact way, so any information the website visitors submit shall be encrypted. The one difference is that if you input the shared IP instead of your domain inside an Internet browser, the site will not appear.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host an Internet site inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to protect the info of your site visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with several clicks. You can select this option within the SSL order wizard that you'll find inside the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even pick the certificate to be installed for the particular domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the chance to protect the data of your 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 website shall not accessible if you enter the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain within the Internet browser address bar.
