SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the info which users submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and products online and they enter their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your Internet site and shall make it more attractive to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that is typically needed for the SSL installation. If you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services given that our cloud 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
Since we offer SSL certificates with our shared web hosting packages, you can effortlessly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with only a few mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order process, therefore if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this type of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been set up particularly for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the one difference will be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your Internet site. Since our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically once it's issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you can have a protected and reliable website without having to spend more money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host an Internet site inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you'd like to preserve the information of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with just several mouse clicks. You can pick this option inside the SSL order wizard which you'll find within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even pick the certificate to be set up for the particular domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to protect the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the info in any way. The one difference from using a dedicated address is that your website shall not accessible if you type the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain inside the Internet browser address bar.
