If you would like to protect the data which visitors submit on your site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol used to encode any info exchanged between a site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the actual content, therefore if you have a login form of some sort or you offer services and products online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the information 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 when you manage a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not make a big profit, so to save you the funds, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Hosting
Given that we offer SSL certificates with our hosting solutions, you can effortlessly secure your website and use a shared IP address with just a couple of mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for such a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate will work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference shall be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your site. Given that our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically once it is issued, so you'll not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you'll be able to have a risk-free and reliable Internet site without spending more money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host a site within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you'd like to protect the data of your site visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with a few clicks. You can choose this option within the SSL order wizard that you shall find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even pick the certificate to be installed for the particular domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the chance to secure the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the info in any way. The sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site will not be accessible if you type the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain in the Internet browser address bar.
