SSL, which is an acronym 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 buy products and services online and they type in their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your site and will make it more appealing to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually needed for the SSL installation. If you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the money, you could avoid the additional expense by making use of our services due to the fact that 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 Shared Website Hosting
A shared IP could be used for any SSL certificate, regardless if you acquire it from us or from another dealer and regardless of the shared website hosting service which you have on our end. If you obtain the SSL from us, you will come across this option on the certificate order page in your hosting CP where you can also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option which we offer you. If the latter is chosen inside the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you via the specially configured server shared IP, so once you acquire and approve the SSL, there won't be anything else to do on your end. You'll be able to save the cash that you will otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL shall function in the exact same way, so any information that the visitors submit will be encoded. The only difference is that if you enter the shared IP address instead of your domain in a web browser, the Internet site won't display.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host a website inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to secure the information of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with just several mouse clicks. You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard that you will find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even choose the certificate to be installed for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the chance to protect the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the data in any way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that your website shall not accessible if you type the shared IP address as opposed to the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
