SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the information that customers submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase goods and services online and they input their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your site and will make it more attractive to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, which is typically needed for the SSL installation. In case you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the funds, you'll be able to avoid the added expense by making use of our services as our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Website Hosting
You could use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with each cloud website hosting plan we offer and irrespective if the SSL is bought through our company or through a third-party business. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only could you pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you could also pick our auto-configuration option, so when you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will do the installation for you within a couple of seconds and you won't have to do anything by hand. The sole 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 besides that, everything will be the same. With this feature you can protect the data of your clients and have a risk-free Internet site without the extra expense for a dedicated IP address.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host a website inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to protect the info of your visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with only several mouse clicks. You can select this option in the SSL order wizard which you shall find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even choose the certificate to be set up for the given domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the opportunity to secure the information of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the data in any way. The one main difference from using a dedicated address is that your site will not be accessible if you enter the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain in the web browser address bar.
