SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the information which clients submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy products and services online and they input their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your site and will make it more inviting to clients, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that's typically needed for the SSL installation. In case you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the funds, you can avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting
You'll be able to use this option with all of our shared web hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you prefer to use an SSL from our company, everything can be arrange automatically and you will not have to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to pick a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires only 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the needed info for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL won't be impacted in any way and any info which visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the exact same way. The one difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever seek to access it in this way instead of inputting your domain within the Internet browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host a website within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to protect the info of your site visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can select this option within the SSL order wizard which you'll find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even select the certificate to be set up for the given domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the chance to protect the info of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the data in any way. The only main difference from using a dedicated address is that your website shall not accessible if you type the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
