SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the info that clients submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase products and services online and they input their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your website and will make it more attractive to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that is usually required for the SSL installation. If you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the funds, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services given that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting
You shall be able to use this option with all of our cloud web hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. When you prefer to use an SSL from our company, everything will be set up automatically and you'll not need to do anything after you obtain and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to select a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires only two additional mouse clicks after you fill the required details for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL shall not be impacted in any way and any details that site visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the very same way. The sole difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your website, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever try to access it in this way as opposed to entering your domain name inside the Internet browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host a site in a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you would like to secure the data of your visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with only several mouse clicks. You can select this option inside the SSL order wizard that you shall find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even choose the certificate to be installed for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the opportunity to secure the data of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the information in any way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that your site won't be accessible if you enter the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
