SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the info which customers submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they input their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your website and shall make it more appealing to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, which is usually required for the SSL installation. If you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the funds, you can avoid the extra expense by making use of our services given that our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting
Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our web hosting packages, you can very easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with just a few mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, thus if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for such a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference shall be that if someone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your Internet site. Given that our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically the instant it's issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you could have a secure and reliable Internet site without having to spend extra money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host a website inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to secure the data 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 choose this option in the SSL order wizard that you shall find in the Hepsia hosting CP and you can 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 as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the opportunity to protect the data of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the info in any way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that your site won't be accessible if you enter the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain inside the web browser address bar.
