If you wish to protect the data that 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 encrypt any data exchanged between a website and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the real content, therefore if you have a login form of some sort or you offer products and services online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the info is protected. Typically a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter if you manage a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't generate a big revenue, so to save you the funds, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Website Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all of our cloud website hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. When you prefer to work with an SSL from our company, everything shall be arrange automatically and you'll not need 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 set up by our system, so using this feature requires no more than 2 additional clicks after you fill the required information for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL won't be affected in any way and any information that visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the same exact way. The only difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever try to access it that way instead of inputting your domain name inside the browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host a website within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you wish to protect the data of your website visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with several mouse clicks. You can select this option inside the SSL order wizard that you shall find inside the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even select the certificate to be set up for the given domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the opportunity to secure the information of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the info in any way. The one main difference from using a dedicated address is that your website will not be accessible if you enter the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain in the Internet browser address bar.
