If you wish to protect the data that visitors submit on your website, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol employed to encode any info exchanged between a website and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any info, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the authentic content, so if you have a login form of some type or you offer products and services online and customers submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the information is protected. Usually a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional expense may matter if you manage a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not make a big profit, so to save you the funds, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting

Since we offer SSL certificates with our cloud web hosting solutions, you can quickly secure your website and use a shared IP address with only a few clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you'll be able to use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for this kind of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, that has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference shall be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your Internet site. Given that our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically as soon as it is issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you could have a risk-free and reliable site without spending extra cash for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host an Internet site within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you'd like to preserve the data of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with only several mouse clicks. You can select this option inside the SSL order wizard that you'll find within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even choose the certificate to be set up for the given domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the chance to protect the info of your site 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 website won't be accessible if you enter the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain in the Internet browser address bar.
