SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the data which users submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they input their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your website and shall make it more inviting to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's usually needed for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the funds, you'll be able to avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services since our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting

You will be able to use this option with all our shared hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you prefer to work with an SSL from our company, everything will be set up automatically and you won't need to do anything after you obtain and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to choose a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this function requires only 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the necessary data for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL will not be impacted in any way and any information which website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the very same way. The sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever seek to access it that way instead of entering your domain name in the Internet browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host an Internet site within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to preserve the information of your visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with several clicks. You can choose this option in the SSL order wizard that you will find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even choose the certificate to be installed for the specific domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the opportunity to preserve the info of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the info in any way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that your website will not be accessible if you type the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain inside the browser address bar.
