SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the info which clients submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and products online and they enter their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your Internet site and shall make it more inviting to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that is usually needed for the SSL installation. If you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the capital, you could avoid the extra expense by making use of our services since our cloud website 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 will be able to use this option with all our web hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. When you decide to work with an SSL from our company, everything will be set up automatically and you won't 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 set up by our system, so using this feature requires only 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the required details for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL shall not be influenced in any way and any info which website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the exact same way. The sole difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever seek to access it in this way instead of inputting your domain name within the browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host an Internet site inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you'd like to secure the data of your visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with a few clicks. You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard that you shall find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even choose the certificate to be set up for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the chance to secure the data of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the info in any way. The sole difference from using a dedicated address is that your website will not be accessible if you type the shared IP address as opposed to the domain/subdomain within the web browser address bar.
