SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the information that clients submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they buy goods and services online and they enter their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your Internet site and will make it more attractive to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that is normally needed for the SSL installation. If you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the money, you can avoid the additional expense by making use of our services since 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 packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. If you prefer to use an SSL from our company, everything shall be set up automatically and you'll not have to do anything after you buy 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 function requires no more than two additional mouse clicks after you fill the necessary info for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL will not be affected in any way and any info which website visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the same exact way. The only big difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your Internet site, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it in this way as opposed to typing your domain name in the browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host an Internet site within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to secure the information of your visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with a couple of clicks. You can choose this option in the SSL order wizard that you shall find within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even pick the certificate to be set up for the specific domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the opportunity to protect the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the info in any way. The sole difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site shall not accessible if you enter the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain within the web browser address bar.
