SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the data which users submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they enter their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your website and will make it more appealing to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, which is normally required for the SSL installation. In case you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the money, you could avoid the extra expense by making use of our services given that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting
You'll be able to use this option with all our cloud hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. When you choose to work with an SSL from our company, everything can be set up automatically and you will not have to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow 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 necessary data for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL shall not be impacted in any way and any details which site visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The one difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your website, but it is unlikely that anybody will ever try to access it in this way as opposed to inputting your domain name in the world-wide web browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host an Internet site within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you wish to preserve the info of your site visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with just a few mouse clicks. You can select this option within the SSL order wizard that you shall find within 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 set up for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the chance to secure the info of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the information in any way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that your website will not be accessible if you input the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain inside the Internet browser address bar.
