SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the data which clients submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire goods and services online and they input their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the security of your Internet site and shall make it more inviting to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, which is normally required for the SSL installation. If you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services as our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting

You could use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with each and every cloud hosting plan which we offer and irrespective if the SSL is bought through our company or through a third-party firm. 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 may also select our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will handle the installation for you within a couple of seconds and you won't have to do anything yourself. The sole difference between using a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your Internet site will not appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but other than that, everything will be identical. With this function you could protect the info of your clients and have a secure Internet site without the extra expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host an Internet site in a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you'd like to protect the info of your visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with only several mouse clicks. You can pick this option in the SSL order wizard which you will find within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even select the certificate to be set up for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the opportunity to secure the information of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the data in any way. The only main difference from using a dedicated address is that your website will not be accessible if you enter the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain inside the browser address bar.
