SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the data that users submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and products online and they type in their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your site and shall make it more appealing to clients, but besides the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, which is typically needed for the SSL installation. In case you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the money, you could avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services as our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared 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 choose to use an SSL from our company, everything will be arrange automatically and you won't have to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to choose a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this function requires a maximum of two additional mouse clicks after you fill the necessary information for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL shall not be affected in any way and any info that website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the exact same way. The sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your site, but it is unlikely that anybody will ever try to access it this way as opposed to inputting your domain within the web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host a site in a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you wish to preserve the information of your site visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with only several mouse clicks. You can pick this option in 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 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 preserve the info of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the info in any way. The one main difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site shall not accessible if you type the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain within the web browser address bar.
