SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the data that clients submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they purchase goods and services online and they type in their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your site and will make it more attractive to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's typically required for the SSL installation. In case you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the capital, you could avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services as our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to use this option with all of our shared website hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. When you decide to use an SSL from our company, everything can be set up automatically and you will not have to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to pick a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires a maximum of 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the necessary information for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL will not be impacted in any way and any info that website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the same exact way. The sole big difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it in this way rather than entering your domain name in the web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host a site within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to protect the data of your site visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with only several clicks. You can select this option within the SSL order wizard which you'll find inside the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even pick the certificate to be set up for the given domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. In this 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 opportunity to secure the information of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the information in any way. The one difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site will not be accessible if you type the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain within the web browser address bar.
