If you would like to protect the information that visitors submit on your site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol used to encrypt any data exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the real content, so if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and goods online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the info is secure. Usually a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional expense may matter when you manage a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not make a big income, so to save you the cash, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting

You shall be able to use this option with all our shared hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. If you prefer to work with an SSL from our company, everything shall be set up automatically and you'll not need to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to pick a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this function requires only 2 additional clicks after you fill the necessary info for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL won't be affected in any way and any info which visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the same exact way. The sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever attempt to access it this way as opposed to inputting your domain name in the browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host a site inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you wish to protect the info of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with just a couple of mouse clicks. You can select this option within the SSL order wizard that you'll find inside the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even select the certificate to be set up for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the opportunity to secure the data of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the information in any way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that your website won't be accessible if you type the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain within the web browser address bar.
