SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the data that customers submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire goods and services online and they enter their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your site and shall make it more attractive to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that is normally required for the SSL installation. In case you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far 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 Website Hosting
You'll be able to use this option with all our website hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. If you prefer to work with an SSL from our company, everything shall be set up automatically and you will not have to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to choose a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires no more than two additional mouse clicks after you fill the necessary data for the certificate. The proper operation of the SSL won't be affected in any way and any details which site visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the same exact way. The one difference from working with 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 rather than inputting your domain inside the Internet browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host a website within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you would like to preserve the information of your site visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with only several clicks. You can select this option within the SSL order wizard that you shall find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even choose the certificate to be set up for the given domain or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the opportunity to secure the data of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the data in any way. The one difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site will not be accessible if you type the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain within the web browser address bar.
