If you wish to protect the information which visitors submit on your website, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol used to encrypt any data exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the authentic content, therefore if you have a login form of some sort or you offer goods and services online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the information is protected. Usually a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional expense may matter if you run a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't generate a big revenue, so to save you the funds, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each shared web hosting solution we offer and irrespective if the SSL is ordered through our company or through a third-party vendor. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only could you select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also choose our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will set it up for you within a matter of seconds and you will not need to do anything personally. The one difference between using a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your website will not appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but apart from that, everything shall be exactly the same. With this function you'll be able to protect the information of your customers and have a secure site without the added expense for a dedicated IP.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host a website inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to preserve the information of your site visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with only a few mouse clicks. You can select this option within the SSL order wizard that you shall find within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can 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 the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the opportunity to protect the data of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall 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 instead of the domain/subdomain within the web browser address bar.
