SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the info that customers submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they input their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your site and shall make it more attractive to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's typically needed for the SSL installation. If you run a modest 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 money, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services as our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to use this option with all of our shared website hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. When you decide to use an SSL from our company, everything shall be set up automatically and you won't need to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit 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 clicks after you fill the necessary data for the certificate. The proper operation of the SSL will not be impacted in any way and any info which visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the exact same way. The one big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever seek to access it in this way instead of typing your domain inside the browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host an Internet site in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to preserve the info of your visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP address which 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 will find inside the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even pick the certificate to be installed for the particular domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can 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 information of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the data in any way. The only big difference from using a dedicated address is that your website shall not accessible if you type the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain within the Internet browser address bar.
