SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the info which customers submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase products and services online and they type in their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your Internet site and shall make it more attractive to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's usually needed for the SSL installation. In case you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the money, you could avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services since our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host an Internet site within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to secure the info of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with several clicks. You can select this option in the SSL order wizard that you will find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even choose the certificate to be set up for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. 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 chance to protect the info of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the info in any way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that your site will not be accessible if you enter the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain in the web browser address bar.
