If you want to protect the data which visitors submit on your website, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol used to encode any data exchanged between a site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the actual content, and so if you have a login form of some type or you offer services and products online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the information is secure. Typically a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional expense may matter when you manage a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't make 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 Cloud Website Hosting
You can use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each and every cloud website hosting package that we offer and regardless if the SSL is purchased through us or through a third-party company. If the SSL is obtained on our end, not only can you pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also select our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will set it up for you within a few seconds and you'll not need to do anything personally. The one difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your website won't appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but besides that, everything will be the same. With this function you can protect the info of your clients and have a risk-free Internet site without the extra expense for a dedicated IP address.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host a website in a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you wish to secure the info of your site visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with just a couple of clicks. You can choose this option in the SSL order wizard that you will find within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even select the certificate to be set up for the specific domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the chance to preserve the information of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the information in any way. The only big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site will not be accessible if you type the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain in the web browser address bar.
