SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the info that clients submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase goods and services online and they type in their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the security of your Internet site and will make it more appealing to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that's normally required for the SSL installation. If you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the funds, you can avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services since 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 Hosting
You shall be able to use this option with all our hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. When you decide to use an SSL from our company, everything will be set up automatically and you will not need to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to pick a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires only two additional mouse clicks after you fill the necessary data for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL won't be influenced in any way and any info that site visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the very same way. The one difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever try to access it this way instead of typing your domain in the world-wide web browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host an Internet site within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to preserve the info of your site visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with a few mouse clicks. You can choose this option inside the SSL order wizard which you shall find within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even pick the certificate to be installed for the given domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the opportunity to preserve the data of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the information in any way. The only main difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site won't be accessible if you type the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain within the browser address bar.
