If you want to protect the data which visitors submit on your website, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol used to encrypt any information exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any information, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the real content, and so if you have a login form of some kind or you offer products and services online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the info is protected. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. 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 funds, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Website Hosting
Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud website hosting plans, 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 can use the shared IP, which has been set up particularly for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference will be that if anyone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your website. As our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically once it is issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you'll be able to have a secure and trustworthy Internet site without spending extra money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host a site within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to protect the information of your visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with just 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 can even pick the certificate to be installed for the given 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 give you the opportunity to protect the information of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the information in any way. The one difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site won't be accessible if you type the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
