If you would like to protect the information that visitors submit on your Internet site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol employed to encode any info exchanged between a website and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any data, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the authentic content, therefore 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 will be a guarantee that the info 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 cost may matter in case you manage a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that 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 Web Hosting

A shared IP can be used for any SSL certificate, no matter if you purchase it from us or from another seller and regardless of the cloud web hosting service that you have on our end. If you get the SSL from us, you shall come across this option on the certificate order page within your hosting CP where you can also take advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option which we offer. If the latter is picked in the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you through the specially configured server shared IP, so once you buy and approve the SSL, there shall not be anything else to do on your end. You could save the cash you will otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL shall function in the same exact way, so any info that the website visitors submit shall be encrypted. The one difference is that if you enter the shared IP address instead of your domain in an Internet browser, the website won't appear.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host a website inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to secure the data of your visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with a few mouse clicks. You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard that you will find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even choose the certificate to be installed for the given domain 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 opportunity to preserve the information of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the info in any way. The sole main difference from using a dedicated address is that your website shall not accessible if you type the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain within the web browser address bar.
