If you'd like to protect the data which visitors submit on your site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encode any information exchanged between a website and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the authentic content, so if you have a login form of some sort or you offer services and goods online and customers submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the info is secure. Typically a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional cost may matter if you manage a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not generate a big profit, so to save you the cash, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting

A shared IP can be employed for any SSL certificate, irrespective if you acquire it from our company or from another vendor and regardless of the web hosting plan which you have on our end. If you get the SSL through us, you will discover this option on the certificate order page within your hosting Control Panel where you could also take advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option we offer. If the latter is chosen within the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you via the specially configured server shared IP address, so once you obtain and approve the SSL, there shall not be anything else to do on your end. You'll be able to save the money that you will otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL shall function in the exact same way, so any data which the site visitors submit will be encrypted. The one difference is that if you enter the shared IP address instead of your domain name in a browser, the Internet site won't display.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host a site inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you wish to preserve the info of your website visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with a few clicks. You can choose this option inside the SSL order wizard which you shall find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even pick the certificate to be installed for the specific domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the chance to protect the data of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the data in any way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that your website won't be accessible if you enter the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain within the Internet browser address bar.
