SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the information which users submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire products and services online and they input their credit card info, the data shall 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 raise the security of your website and will make it more inviting to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that is normally needed for the SSL installation. If you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the capital, you'll be able to 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 Website Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all of our website hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. When 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 set up by our system, so using this function requires a maximum of two additional clicks after you fill the needed info for the certificate. The appropriate functioning of the SSL shall not be affected in any way and any information that site visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the same exact way. The only big difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it in this way rather than entering your domain within the world-wide web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host a site inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to preserve the data of your website visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with just several clicks. You can choose this option inside the SSL order wizard that you will find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even choose the certificate to be installed for the given domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP the minute 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 data in any way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that your site won't be accessible if you type the shared IP address as opposed to the domain/subdomain inside the Internet browser address bar.
