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

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting

You could use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with each cloud hosting package we offer and regardless if the SSL is acquired through our company or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is bought on our end, not only can you choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also choose our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will do the installation for you within a few seconds and you will not need to do anything by hand. The one difference between using a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your Internet site will not appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but other than that, everything will be identical. With this feature you'll be able to protect the data of your customers and have a reliable Internet site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host an Internet site inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to protect the information of your site visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with just a couple of clicks. You can select this option in the SSL order wizard which you'll find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even pick the certificate to be installed for the given domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the chance to secure the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the information in any way. The one difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site will not be accessible if you type the shared IP address as opposed to the domain/subdomain within the browser address bar.
