If you want to protect the information which visitors submit on your Internet site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encrypt any data exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any information, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the real content, therefore if you have a login form of some sort or you offer goods and services online and customers submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the info is secure. Usually 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 run a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not generate a big income, 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 Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to use this option with all of our cloud website hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. When you decide to use an SSL from our company, everything can be arrange automatically and you'll not have to do anything after you buy 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 function requires no more than two additional mouse clicks after you fill the required details for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL will not be influenced in any way and any information which site visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the very same way. The only difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever seek to access it that way as opposed to entering your domain name within the web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host an Internet site within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to secure the info of your visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with a couple of clicks. You can choose this option in the SSL order wizard which you'll find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even pick the certificate to be installed for the specific domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. This 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 chance to preserve the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the information in any way. The sole difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site shall not accessible if you input the shared IP address as opposed to the domain/subdomain inside the Internet browser address bar.
