SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the data that users submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they buy products and services online and they type in their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your site and shall make it more attractive to clients, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's usually required for the SSL installation. In case you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Website Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all our cloud website hosting packages 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 will not have to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to pick a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires only two additional clicks after you fill the needed details for the certificate. The appropriate functioning of the SSL will not be affected in any way and any info which site visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the exact same way. The sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your website, but it is unlikely that anybody will ever attempt to access it in this way instead of typing your domain name inside the browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host a site inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you'd like to preserve the data of your site visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with only a couple of clicks. You can pick this option in the SSL order wizard that you will find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even select the certificate to be set up for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to secure the information of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the data in any way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site will not be accessible if you enter the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain in the web browser address bar.
