If you want to protect the information which visitors submit on your website, you'll need 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 person intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the real content, so if you have a login form of some sort or you offer products and services online and clients submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the information is protected. Usually a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional expense may matter in case you manage a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't make a big income, so to save you the cash, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting

A shared IP can be used for any SSL certificate, irrespective if you buy it from us or from some other seller and regardless of the shared hosting plan you have on our end. If you get the SSL through us, you'll discover this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting CP where you can also take full advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option we offer. If the latter is picked within the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you via the specifically configured server shared IP address, so once you order and approve the SSL, there will not be anything else to do on your end. You could save the funds that you will otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL will work in the exact same way, so any information the site visitors submit will be encrypted. The only difference is that if you type the shared IP instead of your domain name in a web browser, the website shall not show up.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host an Internet site in a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you'd like to secure the data of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with just a couple of mouse clicks. You can choose this option in the SSL order wizard which you'll find within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even select the certificate to be set up for the given domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the opportunity to protect the data of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the information in any way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site won't be accessible if you type the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
