If you wish to protect the information that visitors submit on your site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol used to encode any info exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the real content, thus if you have a login form of some sort or you offer products and services online and clients submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the info is secure. Typically a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter when you manage a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't generate a big profit, so to save you the money, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

You will be able to use this option with all our cloud web hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. When you prefer to work with an SSL from our company, everything can be arrange automatically and you will not have to do anything after you buy 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 installed by our system, so using this feature requires no more than 2 additional clicks after you fill the necessary details for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL won't be impacted in any way and any details that visitors submit on your website will 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 anybody will ever seek to access it this way rather than entering your domain name in the 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 wish to preserve the information of your site visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with only a couple of clicks. You can choose this option within the SSL order wizard which you will find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even select the certificate to be set up for the specific domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the chance to secure the data of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the information in any way. The one main difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site shall not accessible if you type the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain in the Internet browser address bar.
