SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the information that clients submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they input their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your Internet site and will make it more attractive to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's normally required for the SSL installation. In case you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the funds, you could avoid the added expense by making use of our services due to the fact 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 Web Hosting

You shall be able to use this option with all of our web hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. If you decide to use an SSL from our company, everything can be set up automatically and you will not have to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to select a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires only 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the necessary data for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL will not be affected in any way and any information that visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the very same way. The one big difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it this way rather than inputting your domain name within the world-wide web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host an Internet site within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you wish to secure the info of your visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with just a couple of clicks. You can pick this option inside the SSL order wizard which you'll find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even select the certificate to be set up for the given domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to secure the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the data in any way. The only main difference from using a dedicated address is that your site will not be accessible if you enter the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain within the web browser address bar.
