SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the info that users submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and products online and they input their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your website and will make it more attractive to clients, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the funds, you could avoid the additional expense by making use of our services given that our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting

Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our web hosting plans, you can very easily secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just a few mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you could 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, that has been configured specifically for SSLs. The certificate will work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference will be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your website. Given that our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically once it's issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you can have a secure and trustworthy website without spending more money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host a site inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to protect the info of your site visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with just several clicks. You can select this option inside the SSL order wizard that you shall find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even choose the certificate to be set up for the specific domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to protect the information of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the data in any way. The one big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site shall not accessible if you input the shared IP address as opposed to the domain/subdomain within the Internet browser address bar.
