SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the data which customers submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they input their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your website and will make it more attractive to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, which is typically required for the SSL installation. In case you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the capital, you could avoid the extra expense by making use of our services since our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host a website in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to preserve the data of your website visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with only several mouse clicks. You can select this option in the SSL order wizard that you shall find in the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even pick the certificate to be installed for the particular domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the opportunity to secure the data of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the information in any way. The one main difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site shall not accessible if you enter the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain within the Internet browser address bar.
