If you'd like to protect the information that visitors submit on your Internet site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol used to encode any information exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the actual content, so if you have a login form of some sort or you offer goods and services online and customers submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the information is protected. Usually a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional expense may matter in case you manage a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not make a big revenue, so to save you the money, our cloud website 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 address for an SSL certificate with each shared web hosting plan which we offer and no matter if the SSL is purchased through us or through a third-party business. If the SSL is bought on our end, not only could you choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you could also choose our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will handle the installation for you within a couple of seconds and you will not need to do anything yourself. The one difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your website won't appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything shall be identical. With this function you can protect the info of your customers and have a risk-free Internet site without the added expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host a website in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to protect the info of your visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can pick this option inside the SSL order wizard that you'll find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even select the certificate to be installed for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to protect the information of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the info in any way. The sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site will not be accessible if you type the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
