If you would like to protect the info that visitors submit on your site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol employed to encrypt any info exchanged between a website and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the authentic content, so if you have a login form of some type or you offer services and goods online and clients submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the information is protected. Typically a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional expense may matter if you manage a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not make a big profit, so to save you the money, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting

A shared IP can be used for any SSL certificate, regardless if you purchase it from our company or from some other seller and regardless of the shared web hosting package that you have on our end. If you acquire the SSL through us, you will come across this option on the certificate order page within your hosting Control Panel where you can also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option that we offer you. If the latter is selected in the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you via the specially configured server shared IP, therefore once you acquire and approve the SSL, there shall not be anything else to do on your end. You could save the funds that you'll otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL shall work in the exact same way, so any info which the visitors submit will be encoded. The one difference is that if you type the shared IP instead of your domain name within a web browser, the site won't appear.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host an Internet site inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to secure the data of your site visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with a couple of clicks. You can choose this option inside the SSL order wizard which you will find within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even pick the certificate to be set up for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the chance to protect the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the data in any way. The one difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site shall not accessible if you enter the shared IP address as opposed to the domain/subdomain inside the browser address bar.
