If you want to protect the data which visitors submit on your website, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to 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 shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the actual content, thus if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and products online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the information is protected. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional cost may matter in case you run a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't generate a big revenue, 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 Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host an Internet site inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to protect the data of your visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with just a few mouse clicks. You can select this option inside the SSL order wizard that you shall find in the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even pick the certificate to be installed for the particular domain or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to secure the information of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the information in any way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site shall not accessible if you enter the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain within the web browser address bar.
