If you'd like to protect the info that visitors submit on your Internet site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encode 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 authentic content, and so if you have a login form of some type or you offer goods and services online and customers submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the information is protected. Usually a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional expense may matter in case you manage a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't make a big profit, so to save you the money, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Hosting
You can use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each hosting package that we offer and regardless if the SSL is ordered through our company or through a third-party vendor. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only can you select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also choose our auto-configuration option, so when you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall do the installation for you within a matter of seconds and you won't have to do anything by hand. The only difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your site will not appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything shall be identical. With this feature you can protect the info of your customers and have a secure website without the added expense for a dedicated IP.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host a site in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to secure the data of your site visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with only several mouse clicks. You can select this option inside the SSL order wizard which you shall find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even pick the certificate to be set up for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the opportunity to preserve the data of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the data in any way. The sole difference from using a dedicated address is that your site will not be accessible if you enter the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain in the web browser address bar.
