If you want to protect the info which visitors submit on your Internet site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol used to encode any data exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the authentic content, so if you have a login form of some kind or you offer products and services online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the info is secure. Usually 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 run a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't make 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.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to use this option with all of our cloud hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. If you choose to use an SSL from our company, everything can be set up automatically and you will not need to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable 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 information for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL won't be affected in any way and any details which visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the same exact way. The only difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever try to access it this way as opposed to inputting your domain name within the browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host a website in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to preserve the info of your website visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with a couple of mouse clicks. You can select this option inside the SSL order wizard which you'll find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even choose the certificate to be set up for the specific domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to protect the data of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the data in any way. The sole difference from using a dedicated address is that your website won't be accessible if you input the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
