SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the data that users submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they buy goods and services online and they input their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your website and shall make it more attractive to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, which is typically required for the SSL installation. If you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by making use of our services due to the fact that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting

You can use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with each and every shared web hosting package we offer and regardless if the SSL is ordered through us or through a third-party vendor. If the SSL is obtained on our end, not only will you be able to pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also choose our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall install it for you within a few seconds and you won't need to do anything yourself. 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 as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but other than that, everything will be the same. With this feature you could protect the info of your clients and have a secure Internet site without the added expense for a dedicated IP address.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host an Internet site in a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you wish to secure the information of your site visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with just a few clicks. You can choose this option within the SSL order wizard that you will find within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even choose the certificate to be set up for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the opportunity to secure the data of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the info in any way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that your site shall not accessible if you enter the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
