If you wish to protect the information which visitors submit on your website, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encode any information exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any information, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the authentic content, and so if you have a login form of some type or you offer products and services online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the data is protected. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional expense may matter if you manage a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not generate 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 Shared Website Hosting

Since we offer SSL certificates with our shared website hosting solutions, you can effortlessly secure your site and use a shared IP address with just several mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, therefore if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this kind of a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference will be that if anyone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your website. Since our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically the instant it's issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you'll be able to have a secure and trustworthy website without spending more money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host a website within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you'd like to secure the information of your visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can choose this option within the SSL order wizard which you shall find within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even select the certificate to be set up for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the chance to secure the data of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the information in any way. The sole main difference from using a dedicated address is that your site won't be accessible if you input the shared IP address as opposed to the domain/subdomain inside the Internet browser address bar.
