If you wish to protect the data which visitors submit on your Internet site, 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 information, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the authentic content, so if you have a login form of some sort or you offer goods and services online and customers submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the data is secure. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter when you manage a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not generate 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 Website Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with each and every website hosting
solution that we offer and no matter if the SSL is bought through our company or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is bought on our end, not only will you be able to choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also choose our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will set it up for you within a couple of seconds and you'll not need to do anything manually. The sole difference between using a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your Internet site will not appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but other than that, everything will be identical. With this feature you'll be able to protect the info of your clients and have a reliable website without the extra expense for a dedicated IP address.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host an Internet site inside a semi-dedicated server
account from our company and you'd like to preserve the info of your visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with several mouse clicks. You can pick this option in the SSL order wizard which you'll find within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even select the certificate to be set up for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can 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 site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the information in any way. The only big difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site won't be accessible if you type the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain within the web browser address bar.
