If you want to protect the info that visitors submit on your Internet site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol used to encrypt any data exchanged between a website and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the actual content, so if you have a login form of some type or you offer products and services online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the information is protected. 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 web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not make a big revenue, so to save you the funds, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting
You shall be able to use this option with all of our shared web hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. When you choose to work with an SSL from our company, everything shall be arrange automatically and you won't have to do anything after you purchase 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 a maximum of 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the required information for the certificate. The appropriate functioning of the SSL shall not be impacted in any way and any data that visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the very same way. The one difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your website, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever seek to access it in this way instead of inputting your domain inside the web browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host a website in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to preserve the info of your site visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with only several clicks. You can select this option in the SSL order wizard which you'll find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even pick the certificate to be installed for the particular domain or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the opportunity to secure 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 site won't be accessible if you enter the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain within the browser address bar.
