If you wish to protect the info that visitors submit on your site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol employed to encrypt any info exchanged between a website and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the real content, and so if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and goods online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the information is protected. 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 when you manage a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't 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 Hosting

You shall be able to use this option with all 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 set up automatically and you will not need to do anything after you obtain and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to select a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires no more than 2 additional clicks after you fill the needed details for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL won't be influenced in any way and any data which visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The one difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your website, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever try to access it in this way instead of inputting 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 would like to secure the info of your visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with a couple of mouse clicks. You can select this option within the SSL order wizard that you will find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even select 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 moment you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the opportunity to secure the data of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the information in any way. The sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site shall not accessible if you input the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
