If you would like to protect the information which visitors submit on your site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol used to encrypt any info exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the real content, so if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and products online and customers submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the info is protected. Typically a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional expense may matter in case you manage a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not generate a big profit, so to save you the money, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all of our cloud web hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. When you prefer to use an SSL from our company, everything can be set up automatically and you won't need to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to pick a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires a maximum of 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the necessary details for the certificate. The appropriate functioning of the SSL won't be impacted in any way and any details which site visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the same exact way. The sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever try to access it this way as opposed to typing your domain name inside the Internet browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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