Shared SSL IP
What's a shared SSL IP? How to install an SSL certificate on such an IP?
SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the data that users submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and products online and they enter their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your site and will make it more attractive to customers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, which is usually required for the SSL installation. In case you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the money, you can avoid the added expense by making use of our services as our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Website Hosting
As we offer SSL certificates with our shared website hosting
plans, you can easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with just several mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, hence if you have a dedicated IP, you could use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for this sort of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been configured especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference shall be that if somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your site. Since our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically as soon as it's issued, so you shall not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you'll be able to have a secure and trustworthy site without spending extra cash for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host an Internet site in a semi-dedicated hosting
account from our company and you'd like to preserve the info of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with only a few clicks. You can select this option within the SSL order wizard which you shall find in the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even pick the certificate to be installed for the given domain name
or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the chance to protect the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the info 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 as opposed to the domain/subdomain within the web browser address bar.
