SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the data which clients submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and products online and they type in their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your Internet site and will make it more attractive to customers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, which is typically needed for the SSL installation. If you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting
As we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting solutions, you can very easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with only a few mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, therefore if you have a dedicated IP, you could use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this kind of a service, you could use the shared IP, that has been configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP and the one difference shall 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 installed automatically as soon as it is issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you'll be able to have a secure 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 wish to protect the information of your site visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with a couple of clicks. You can select this option within the SSL order wizard which you will find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even choose the certificate to be installed for the particular domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the chance to protect the data of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the information in any way. The sole main difference from using a dedicated address is that your site won't be accessible if you type the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain inside the browser address bar.
