If you would like to protect the data which visitors submit on your site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol used to encode any information exchanged between a site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any information, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the actual content, thus if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and products online and customers submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the data is protected. Normally a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional expense may matter in case you manage a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't generate a big revenue, so to save you the funds, our cloud website 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 for an SSL certificate with each website hosting solution we offer and regardless if the SSL is bought 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 once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will do the installation for you within a matter of seconds and you won't need to do anything by hand. The one difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your website won't appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything shall be exactly the same. With this feature you'll be able to 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 an Internet site inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you'd like to secure the info of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with just a couple of mouse clicks. You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard that you will find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even choose the certificate to be installed for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the opportunity to preserve the data of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the info in any way. The one main difference from using a dedicated address is that your website shall not accessible if you enter the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain inside the browser address bar.
