SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the info which users submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they enter their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your website and will make it more attractive to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that is usually required for the SSL installation. If you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting
You could use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with every single website hosting solution we offer and irrespective if the SSL is purchased through us or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is bought on our end, not only can you select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also select our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will install it for you within a few seconds and you will not need to do anything by hand. The only difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your site won't appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but besides that, everything shall be the same. With this function you'll be able to protect the info of your clients and have a reliable website without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard which you will find in the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even choose the certificate to be set up for the given domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to preserve the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the information in any way.
