If you want to protect the data which visitors submit on your Internet site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol used to encode any data exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the real content, thus if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and goods online and clients submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the data is protected. Typically a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional cost may matter when you manage a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not make a big income, so to save you the money, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with each cloud web hosting plan we offer and no matter if the SSL is ordered through our company or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only will you be able to select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also choose our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall do the installation for you within a few seconds and you won't have to do anything manually. The sole difference between using a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your site will not appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but besides that, everything will be exactly the same. With this function you'll be able to protect the data of your customers and have a reliable website without the additional expense for a dedicated IP address.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host a website within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to protect the data of your site visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with only a few mouse clicks. You can select this option in the SSL order wizard that you shall find within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even select the certificate to be installed for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the chance to preserve the information of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the data in any way. The one big 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 within the Internet browser address bar.
