SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the data which customers submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they type in their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the security of your website and shall make it more appealing to customers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's normally needed for the SSL installation. If you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the funds, you can avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting
You'll be able to use this option with all our shared hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. When you prefer to work with an SSL from our company, everything shall be set up automatically and you won't need to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to pick 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 needed data for the certificate. The appropriate functioning of the SSL won't be impacted in any way and any information that site visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the exact same way. The one difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your site, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it that way instead of inputting your domain name within the Internet browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host an Internet site in a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you would like to protect the data of your site visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with only a few mouse clicks. You can select this option inside the SSL order wizard which you will find in the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even select the certificate to be set up for the given domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the opportunity to secure the info of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the info in any way. The sole 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.
