SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the info which customers submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire products and services online and they enter their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your site and shall make it more attractive to clients, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that is typically required for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the funds, you could avoid the added expense by making use of our services as our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only 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 our website 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 will not need to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to select a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires no more than two additional mouse clicks after you fill the necessary information for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL won't be affected in any way and any information which visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the exact same way. The sole 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 this way instead of typing your domain name in the Internet browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host a website in a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you would like to protect the data of your visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with only several clicks. You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard which you shall find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even pick the certificate to be set up for the specific domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the chance to preserve the data of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the info in any way. The sole difference from using a dedicated address is that your website won't be accessible if you enter the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain in the Internet browser address bar.
