If you'd like to protect the data that visitors submit on your site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that's 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 info, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the actual content, and so if you have a login form of some sort or you offer goods and services online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the data is protected. Typically a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter if you manage a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not generate a big revenue, so to save you the money, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to use this option with all of our cloud hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. When you prefer to use an SSL from our company, everything shall be arrange automatically and you won't have to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to select a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this function requires no more than two additional clicks after you fill the necessary info for the certificate. The proper operation of the SSL will not be influenced in any way and any details that visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the exact same way. The sole big difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever seek to access it in this way as opposed to typing your domain in the web 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 wish to secure the information of your visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with only a couple of clicks. You can select this option in the SSL order wizard that you shall find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even pick the certificate to be set up for the given domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to preserve 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 Internet site shall not accessible if you input the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain inside the browser address bar.
