SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the information that customers submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they type in their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your Internet site and shall make it more inviting to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is normally required for the SSL installation. If you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the capital, you can avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services as 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 Shared Website Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with every single shared website hosting plan which we offer and regardless if the SSL is obtained through our company or through a third-party company. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only will you be able to choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also pick our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall handle the installation for you within a few seconds and you'll not need to do anything manually. The sole difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your site won't appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but apart from that, everything will be identical. With this feature you can protect the info of your clients and have a reliable site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host a site in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to secure the data of your visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with several mouse clicks. You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard that you shall find in the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even pick the certificate to be set up for the specific domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the chance to secure the information of your Internet site 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 Internet site will not be accessible if you input the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain inside the browser address bar.
