If you wish to protect the information that visitors submit on your website, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol used to encode any data exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any information, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the real content, thus if you have a login form of some sort or you offer services and products online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the data is protected. Usually a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet 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 income, so to save you the funds, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting
You will be able to use this option with all our cloud web hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. When you decide to work with an SSL from our company, everything can be arrange automatically and you'll not need to do anything after you purchase 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 a maximum of 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the needed details for the certificate. The adequate functioning of the SSL shall not be impacted in any way and any details which visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the exact same way. The sole big difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever try to access it that way as opposed to typing your domain name within the world-wide web browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host a site within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to preserve the data of your site visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with a couple of clicks. You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard that you will find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even pick the certificate to be set up for the given domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the opportunity to secure the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the data in any way. The one big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site won't be accessible if you input the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain within the web browser address bar.
