SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the data that users submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and products online and they enter their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your site and will make it more appealing to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you need to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that's normally required for the SSL installation. If you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the money, you could avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services as our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting

You will be able to use this option with all of our web hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. If you prefer to work with an SSL from our company, everything can be set up automatically and you will not need to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to pick a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires only 2 additional clicks after you fill the needed data for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL shall not be influenced in any way and any data which visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the same exact way. The only big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever seek to access it that way rather than typing your domain in the browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host a site in a semi-dedicated hosting 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 that has been configured for SSL certificates with several clicks. You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard which you shall find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even pick the certificate to be installed for the given domain or subdomain automatically by our system. 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 secure the information of your website 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 shall not accessible if you enter the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain within the browser address bar.
