If you'd like to protect the info that visitors submit on your Internet site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encode any information exchanged between a website and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any data, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the authentic content, therefore if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and products online and customers submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the data is secure. Typically a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional cost may matter if you manage a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't make a big revenue, so to save you the money, our cloud website 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 plans, you can easily secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just a couple of clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, therefore if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this sort of a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference will be that if anyone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your site. Due to the fact that our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically as soon as it's issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you'll be able to have a secure and trustworthy Internet site without having to spend extra cash for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host an Internet site in a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you wish to protect the info of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with a couple of mouse clicks. You can pick this option in the SSL order wizard which you'll find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even pick the certificate to be set up for the particular 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 offer you the chance to secure the information of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the data in any way. The sole main difference from using a dedicated address is that your website will not be accessible if you enter the shared IP address as opposed to the domain/subdomain inside the Internet browser address bar.
