If you would like to protect the info that visitors submit on your site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol employed to encrypt any data exchanged between a site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the authentic content, therefore if you have a login form of some sort or you offer products and services online and customers submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the data is protected. Typically a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional cost may matter if you manage a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't make a big revenue, so to save you the money, 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 shall be able to use this option with all of our shared web hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. When you decide to work with an SSL from our company, everything shall be set up 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 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 needed information for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL will not be influenced in any way and any details which site visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the very same way. The only big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your site, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever try to access it that way rather than entering your domain name in the web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host a website within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to secure the data of your website visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with a few mouse clicks. You can select this option within the SSL order wizard that you shall find in the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even choose the certificate to be set up for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the opportunity to protect 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 sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site won't be accessible if you input the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain inside the Internet browser address bar.
