If you want to protect the data that visitors submit on your site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol used to encrypt any info exchanged between a website and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, 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 actual content, so if you have a login form of some type or you offer services and products online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the information is secure. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional cost may matter if you run a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not make a big income, so to save you the funds, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting

You shall be able to use this option with all our cloud web hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. When you choose to work with an SSL from our company, everything will be set up automatically and you'll not have to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to choose a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires a maximum of 2 additional clicks after you fill the necessary information for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL will not be influenced in any way and any information that website visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the same exact way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your site, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever try to access it in this way as opposed to typing your domain name inside the world-wide web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host an Internet site in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to secure the info of your visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with just a couple of mouse clicks. You can pick this option inside the SSL order wizard which you will find inside the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even choose the certificate to be set up for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the chance to secure the data of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode 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 address instead of the domain/subdomain within the browser address bar.
