If you'd like to protect the data that visitors submit on your site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol employed to encrypt any data exchanged between a site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any info, 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 actual content, so if you have a login form of some sort or you offer products and services online and customers submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the information is secure. 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 online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't generate a big revenue, so to save you the money, 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

Since we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting solutions, you can effortlessly secure your site and use a shared IP address with just several mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you'll be able to use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for this type of a service, you could use the shared IP, that has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP and the sole difference shall be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your site. Since our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically as soon as it's issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you could have a secure and trustworthy site without spending more money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host a website within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you'd like to secure the information of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with just several mouse clicks. You can select this option in the SSL order wizard which you shall find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even select the certificate to be set up for the particular domain or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the chance to secure the data of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the information in any way. The one difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site will not be accessible if you enter the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
