If you would like to protect the info that visitors submit on your website, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol employed to encode any data exchanged between a site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any information, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the real content, so if you have a login form of some sort or you offer services and products online and customers submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the info is protected. Normally a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional cost may matter when you manage a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not generate a big revenue, so to save you the money, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting
Given that we offer SSL certificates with our website hosting packages, you can very easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with only a few clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, thus 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 sort of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the one difference shall be that if somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your site. Due to the fact that our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically once it is issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you could have a protected and trustworthy Internet site without spending extra money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host a website within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you'd like to preserve the information of your site visitors, you'll 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 in the SSL order wizard which you will find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even choose the certificate to be installed for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the chance to protect the information of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the information in any way. The sole main difference from using a dedicated address is that your website won't be accessible if you enter the shared IP address as opposed to the domain/subdomain inside the browser address bar.
