SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the info which clients submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they type in their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your Internet site and will make it more inviting to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's typically required for the SSL installation. If you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the capital, you can avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Hosting

You shall be able to use this option with all of our hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you choose to use an SSL from our company, everything will be arrange automatically and you'll not need to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to choose a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires no more than 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the needed data for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL shall not be influenced in any way and any info which website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the same exact way. The sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your website, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever try to access it this way as opposed to entering your domain name in the web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host an Internet site inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you wish to preserve the data of your visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with only several mouse clicks. You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard which you'll find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even select the certificate to be set up for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the chance to secure the data of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the info in any way. The sole main difference from using a dedicated address is that your website will not be accessible if you input the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain within the browser address bar.
