If you'd like 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 an Internet site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any information, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the real content, thus if you have a login form of some type or you offer services and products online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the information is protected. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional cost may matter in case you manage a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't generate a big revenue, so to save you the cash, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all of our cloud hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. If you choose to work with an SSL from our company, everything can be set up automatically and you won't have to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to select a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this function requires no more than 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the needed info for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL won't be affected in any way and any details which site visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the same exact way. The sole difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your site, but it is unlikely that anybody will ever try to access it this way rather than entering your domain inside the web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host an Internet site inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you wish to protect the info of your visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with several mouse clicks. You can select this option within the SSL order wizard which you'll find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even choose the certificate to be set up for the given domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to protect the data of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the information in any way. The sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site shall not accessible if you input the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain within the web browser address bar.
