If you would like to protect the information that visitors submit on your website, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol used to encrypt any information exchanged between a website and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any information, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the real content, so if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and goods online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the information is protected. Usually a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional cost may matter in case you run a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not make a big revenue, so to save you the money, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting

Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting solutions, you can effortlessly secure your website and use a shared IP address with only several mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order process, thus if you have a dedicated IP, you'll be able to use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this sort of a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference will be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your Internet site. Due to the fact that our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the moment it is issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you can have a secure and reliable Internet site without having to spend extra cash for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host a website in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to secure the info of your website visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with just a couple of mouse clicks. You can choose this option within the SSL order wizard that you will find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even pick the certificate to be set up for the specific domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the chance to preserve the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the data in any way. The only main difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site won't be accessible if you input the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain within the web browser address bar.
