If you would like to protect the info which visitors submit on your site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encrypt any data exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any information, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The present 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 products and services online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the information is protected. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional expense may matter when you manage a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not generate a big income, so to save you the money, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting

You will be able to use this option with all our shared hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. When you decide to work with an SSL from our company, everything shall be set up automatically and you will not have to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to pick a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires no more than two additional clicks after you fill the needed information for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL won't be impacted in any way and any information which visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The one big difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever seek to access it this way instead of typing your domain name in the world-wide web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host a website inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to secure the data of your website visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with only a couple of clicks. You can select this option within the SSL order wizard which you will find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even choose the certificate to be set up for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to secure the data of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the info in any way. The one big difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site won't be accessible if you input the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain in the web browser address bar.
