If you wish to protect the data which visitors submit on your site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol used to encode any data exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the authentic content, thus 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 shall be an assurance that the information is protected. Typically a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional cost may matter when you run a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not generate 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 Cloud Hosting

You shall be able to use this option with all our cloud hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. If you decide to use an SSL from our company, everything shall be set up automatically and you'll not have 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 feature requires a maximum of two additional mouse clicks after you fill the needed details for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL shall not be impacted in any way and any data which website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the same exact way. The sole big difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your website, but it is unlikely that anybody will ever attempt to access it in this way as opposed to typing your domain name inside the web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host a site within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to protect the data of your website visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with just a few clicks. You can choose this option within the SSL order wizard that you will find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even choose the certificate to be set up for the given domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the chance to preserve the info of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the data in any way. The one big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site will not be accessible if you type the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain inside the web browser address bar.
