SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the information which clients submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they type in their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your website and will make it more attractive to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that's usually needed for the SSL installation. In case you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the funds, you could avoid the added expense by making use of our services given that 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 Shared Hosting
You will be able to use this option with all of our shared hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. When you choose to use an SSL from our company, everything will be arrange automatically and you won't need to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to select a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this function requires a maximum of 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the required details for the certificate. The proper operation of the SSL will not be impacted in any way and any data which visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the same exact way. The sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your site, but it is unlikely that anybody will ever try to access it in this way rather than inputting your domain within the world-wide 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 would like to protect the data of your site visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with a couple of clicks. You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard which you will find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even pick the certificate to be installed for the given domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the opportunity to preserve the data of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the data in any way. The one main difference from using a dedicated address is that your website will not be accessible if you type the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain within the web browser address bar.
