SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes 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 input their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your site and shall make it more appealing to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that's typically required for the SSL installation. In case you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the funds, you could avoid the additional expense by making use of our services given that our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting

You shall be able to use this option with all our website hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you choose to use an SSL from our company, everything will be arrange automatically and you will not need to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to pick a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires a maximum of 2 additional clicks after you fill the required data for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL will not be influenced in any way and any info that site visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the same exact way. The sole big difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever try to access it this way instead of entering your domain inside the browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host a website within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you'd like to secure the info of your site visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with a couple of clicks. You can choose this option inside the SSL order wizard which you'll find in the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even pick the certificate to be installed for the particular domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the chance to protect the info of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the data in any way. The sole difference from using a dedicated address is that your website won't be accessible if you type the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain within the browser address bar.
