If you would like to protect the information that visitors submit on your website, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol used to encrypt any data exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any data, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the authentic content, and so if you have a login form of some sort or you offer services and goods online and clients submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the information is secure. Normally a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional expense may matter if you manage a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't make a big profit, so to save you the cash, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting
You'll be able to use this option with all our shared web hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. When you prefer to work with an SSL from our company, everything can be arrange automatically and you won't have to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to choose a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires only 2 additional clicks after you fill the needed details for the certificate. The adequate functioning of the SSL shall not be affected in any way and any data that website visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the exact same way. The only difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your Internet site, but it is unlikely that anybody will ever attempt to access it that way instead of entering your domain in the browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host a website within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you wish to secure the info of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with a few clicks. You can select this option in the SSL order wizard which you'll find in the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even select the certificate to be set up for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the opportunity to protect the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the info in any way. The one big difference from using a dedicated address is that your website shall not accessible if you enter the shared IP address as opposed to the domain/subdomain within the web browser address bar.
