If you would like to protect the information which visitors submit on your website, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol used to encode any info exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any information, they'll 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 type or you offer services and products online and customers submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the data is protected. Typically a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter if you manage a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not generate a big income, so to save you the money, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting
Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting packages, you can easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with only several clicks. The option will be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you could use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for this sort of a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been configured specifically for SSLs. The certificate will work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference shall be that if someone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your Internet site. Since our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically once it's issued, so you'll not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you can have a secure and reliable Internet site without having to spend extra cash for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host a website inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to secure the info of your site visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with a couple of clicks. You can select this option inside the SSL order wizard that you will find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even choose the certificate to be set up for the given domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to secure the data of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the information in any way. The sole difference from using a dedicated address is that your site won't be accessible if you input the shared IP address as opposed to the domain/subdomain inside the Internet browser address bar.
