If you would like to protect the information that visitors submit on your site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol employed to encrypt any data exchanged between a website and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the authentic content, and so if you have a login form of some kind or you offer products and services online and clients submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the info is secure. Usually a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter when you manage a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not generate a big income, so to save you the funds, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting
You can use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each and every shared hosting solution that we offer and irrespective if the SSL is obtained through us or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only will you be able to pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you could also pick our auto-configuration option, so when you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will install it for you within a couple of seconds and you won't need to do anything manually. The sole difference between using a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your Internet site will not appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but apart from that, everything shall be the same. With this function you'll be able to protect the info of your clients and have a reliable website without the added expense for a dedicated IP address.
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 information of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with only several clicks. You can choose this option in the SSL order wizard which you will find inside the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even pick the certificate to be set up for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to protect the information of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the data in any way. The sole difference from using a dedicated address is that your website will not be accessible if you input the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain inside the browser address bar.
