SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the info that users submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase goods and services online and they input their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the safety of your website and shall make it more appealing to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend more money for a dedicated IP address, which is normally required for the SSL installation. If you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the money, you could avoid the added expense by making use of our services due to the fact that 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 Hosting

You shall be able to use this option with all our shared hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. When you prefer to use an SSL from our company, everything will be set up automatically and you will not have to do anything after you obtain and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to select a shared IP 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 necessary data for the certificate. The adequate functioning of the SSL shall not be impacted in any way and any info that visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the same exact way. The one big difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your website, but it is unlikely that anybody will ever try to access it that way instead of typing your domain name in the world-wide web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

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