If you want to protect the information which visitors submit on your website, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol employed to encrypt any information exchanged between a website and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the actual content, so if you have a login form of some sort or you offer products and services online and customers submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the info is secure. Usually a dedicated IP address is required 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 store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not make a big income, so to save you the cash, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting

You can use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with every web hosting plan we offer and no matter if the SSL is purchased through us or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only can you select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also select our auto-configuration option, so when you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall do the installation for you within a matter of seconds and you'll not need to do anything yourself. The sole difference between using a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your site won't appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything shall be identical. With this function you could protect the data of your customers and have a risk-free website without the added 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 protect the info of your website visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with only several mouse clicks. You can choose this option in the SSL order wizard that you'll find in the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even select the certificate to be set up for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the chance to secure the information of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the data in any way. The sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site shall not accessible if you type the shared IP address as opposed to the domain/subdomain in the Internet browser address bar.
