SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the info that clients submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they input their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your site and will make it more appealing to customers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, which is usually needed for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the money, you could avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services since our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to use this option with all of our cloud web hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. When you choose to work with an SSL from our company, everything shall be set up automatically and you'll not have to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to select a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires only two additional clicks after you fill the necessary info for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL won't be impacted in any way and any info that site visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The one difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your website, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever try to access it this way instead of entering your domain in the world-wide web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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