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 this is a protocol used to encrypt any data exchanged between a website and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the authentic content, and so if you have a login form of some type or you offer services and products online and clients submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the data is protected. Usually a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional expense may matter in case you run a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not make a big profit, so to save you the cash, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting

You will be able to use this option with all of our website hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. When you prefer to work with an SSL from our company, everything can be set up automatically and you won't have to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to select 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 mouse clicks after you fill the necessary data for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL will not be impacted in any way and any data which website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the same exact way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever seek to access it this way as opposed to typing your domain inside the web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host a website in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to secure the info of your visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with just a couple of clicks. You can pick this option in the SSL order wizard that you shall find inside the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even pick the certificate to be set up for the given domain or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to preserve the info of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the data in any way. The one difference from using a dedicated address is that your site shall not accessible if you type the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain inside the Internet browser address bar.
