SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the information that clients submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they enter their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the security of your website and will make it more appealing to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that is normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the funds, you could avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services given that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting
You'll be able to use this option with all our cloud web hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you decide to work with an SSL from our company, everything can be set up automatically and you won't have to do anything after you obtain and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to pick a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires a maximum of 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the needed data for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL shall not be influenced in any way and any info which site visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the same exact way. The only difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your Internet site, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it this way as opposed to inputting your domain within 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 preserve the information of your site visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with just several clicks. You can choose this option in the SSL order wizard which you will find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even select the certificate to be installed for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to protect the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the information in any way. The one big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site will not be accessible if you input the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain within the browser address bar.
