Shared SSL IP
What is a shared SSL IP? How can you install an SSL certificate on this kind of an IP?
If you'd like to protect the data that visitors submit on your site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol used to encode any info exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any information, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the authentic content, therefore if you have a login form of some type or you offer services and goods online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the information is secure. Normally a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter when you manage a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't make a big revenue, 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 Shared Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every shared hosting
package that we offer and irrespective if the SSL is bought through us or through a third-party vendor. If the SSL is bought on our end, not only will you be able to choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also select our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall install it for you within a couple of seconds and you won't need to do anything manually. The sole difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your Internet 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 can protect the information of your clients and have a reliable site without the added expense for a dedicated IP.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host a website within a semi-dedicated server
account from our company and you wish to preserve the info of your site visitors, you shall 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 which you will find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even select the certificate to be installed for the specific domain
or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the opportunity to protect the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the info in any way. The sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site won't be accessible if you type the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain in the web browser address bar.
