If you'd like to protect the info which visitors submit on your Internet site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol used to encrypt any info exchanged between a website 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 services and products online and customers submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the data is secure. Normally a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional cost may matter in case you manage a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't generate a big profit, so to save you the cash, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting
You will be able to use this option with all our cloud web hosting
plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. When you prefer to use an SSL from our company, everything will be set up automatically and you will not need to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to choose a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires only 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the required info for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL shall not be affected in any way and any info that site visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the exact same way. The one big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever try to access it that way as opposed to inputting your domain
within the browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host a website inside a semi-dedicated hosting
account from our company and you'd like to protect the info of your website visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with only several mouse clicks. You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard which you shall find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even select the certificate to be installed 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 chance to protect the info of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the information in any way. The sole main difference from using a dedicated address is that your site shall not accessible if you input the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain within the Internet browser address bar.
