If you wish to protect the information which visitors submit on your website, you 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 guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the real content, therefore if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and products online and customers submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the data is protected. Typically a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional expense may matter when you run a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't make a big revenue, so to save you the money, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting

A shared IP can be employed for any SSL certificate, regardless if you get it from us or from another vendor and regardless of the shared hosting package that you have on our end. If you obtain the SSL through us, you shall discover this option on the certificate order page within your hosting CP where you could also take full advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option we offer you. If the latter is chosen in the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you using the specifically configured server shared IP, thus once you buy and approve the SSL, there shall not be anything else to do on your end. You'll be able to save the money that you will otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL shall function in the exact same way, so any info the website visitors submit shall be encrypted. The only difference is that if you type the shared IP instead of your domain name within a browser, the website will not display.

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 secure the data of your visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can select this option inside the SSL order wizard which you will find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even pick the certificate to be installed for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything could 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 Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the info in any way. The sole difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site will not be accessible if you input the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain within the Internet browser address bar.
