If you want to protect the data which visitors submit on your website, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encode any info exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the authentic content, therefore if you have a login form of some sort or you offer products and services online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the info is secure. Usually a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional cost may matter if you run a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not generate a big income, so to save you the funds, our cloud web 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 choose to work with an SSL from our company, everything will be arrange automatically and you'll not have to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to select a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires a maximum of two additional mouse clicks after you fill the needed information for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL will not be affected in any way and any details which visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the same exact way. The sole big difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it that way as opposed to typing your domain name inside the web browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host a site inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to preserve the info of your website visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with a couple of mouse clicks. You can choose this option inside the SSL order wizard that you will find in the Hepsia hosting CP and you could 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 installed for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the chance to protect the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the info in any way. The one main difference from using a dedicated address is that your site won't be accessible if you type the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain within the web browser address bar.
