SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the data that clients submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy products and services online and they input their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your Internet site and shall make it more attractive to clients, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that's typically required for the SSL installation. If you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the funds, you can avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services as our cloud web 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 will be able to use this option with all of our website hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you choose to use an SSL from our company, everything will be arrange automatically and you will not need to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to select a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires only two additional mouse clicks after you fill the necessary information for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL won't be impacted in any way and any info that website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The only big difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever seek to access it that way rather than inputting your domain inside the world-wide web browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host a website in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to preserve the data of your site visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with just a couple of clicks. You can select this option inside the SSL order wizard that you shall find in the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even select the certificate to be installed for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the chance to secure the info of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the info in any way. The sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site shall not accessible if you enter the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain inside the browser address bar.
