If you would like to protect the info which visitors submit on your website, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol employed to encode any information exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the actual content, therefore if you have a login form of some type or you offer services and goods online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the info is secure. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter in case 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 money, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Hosting
You will be able to use this option with all of our hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. When you decide to use an SSL from our company, everything can be set up 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 installed by our system, so using this function requires no more than two additional mouse clicks after you fill the required data for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL shall not be impacted in any way and any data that website visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the same exact way. The one difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your site, but it is unlikely that anybody will ever seek to access it that way rather than entering your domain name in the browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host a website in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to secure the information of your visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with several mouse clicks. You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard that you'll find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even pick the certificate to be set up for the specific domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to protect the data of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the data in any way. The sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site will not be accessible if you enter the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain inside the browser address bar.
