If you would like to protect the information that visitors submit on your Internet site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encrypt any info exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the actual content, so if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and goods online and clients submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the data is secure. Usually a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter if you manage a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't make 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 Shared Hosting
Since we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting solutions, you can easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with only a couple of clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, thus if you have a dedicated IP, you'll be able to use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this sort of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been configured especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference will be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your site. Given that our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically once it is issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you'll be able to have a protected and reliable site without spending extra money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host an Internet site within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you would like to preserve the information of your site visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with a few mouse clicks. You can select this option in the SSL order wizard which you'll find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even choose the certificate to be installed for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the opportunity to secure the info of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the data in any way. The only big difference from using a dedicated address is that your website will not be accessible if you enter the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain inside the browser address bar.
