If you wish to protect the info which visitors submit on your site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol employed to encrypt any data exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the authentic content, therefore if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and goods online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the info is secure. Typically a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional expense may matter if you run a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't make a big revenue, 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 Shared Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each and every shared hosting plan we offer and no matter if the SSL is ordered through us or through a third-party business. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only could you select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also pick our auto-configuration option, so when you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall install it for you within a few seconds and you will not have to do anything manually. The one difference between using a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your website will not appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything will be identical. With this feature you could protect the info of your clients and have a risk-free Internet site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host an Internet site in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to preserve the info of your website visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can pick this option inside the SSL order wizard that you'll find inside the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even select the certificate to be set up for the given domain 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 opportunity to secure the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the info in any way. The sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site will not be accessible if you type the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
