If you'd like to protect the data that visitors submit on your site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol employed to encode any data exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any data, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the actual content, therefore if you have a login form of some sort or you offer goods and services online and customers submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the data is secure. Usually a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional expense may matter in case you run a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't make a big revenue, 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 Shared Web Hosting
Since we offer SSL certificates with our shared web hosting plans, you can easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with only several mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, therefore if you have a dedicated IP, you could use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this kind of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, that has been configured especially for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference will be that if somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your site. As our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically as soon as it's issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you'll be able to have a protected and trustworthy Internet site without having to spend more money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host an Internet site within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to protect the information of your website visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with just several clicks. You can choose this option in the SSL order wizard that you'll find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even choose the certificate to be set up for the given domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the chance to protect the info of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the data in any way. The one main difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site won't be accessible if you type the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain inside the browser address bar.
