If you would like to protect the information which visitors submit on your Internet site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encode any info exchanged between a site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any data, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the actual content, and so if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and goods online and customers submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the information is secure. Typically a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter if you manage a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't generate a big income, so to save you the funds, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Hosting

As we offer SSL certificates with our hosting solutions, you can easily secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just a couple of mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, hence if you have a dedicated IP, you'll be able to use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for this kind of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference will be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your website. Due to the fact that our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically as soon as it is issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you can have a risk-free and trustworthy site without having to spend extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host a site inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to secure the data of your site visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with only a few mouse clicks. You can select this option within the SSL order wizard which you will find in the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even select the certificate to be set up for the specific domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the opportunity to preserve the data of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the information in any way. The only main difference from using a dedicated address is that your site will not be accessible if you type the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain within the browser address bar.
