SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the data which customers submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire products and services online and they type in their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your site and will make it more appealing to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually required for the SSL installation. In case you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the money, you can avoid the extra expense by making use of our services due to the fact that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting

When you decide to use an SSL from our company, everything will be arrange automatically and you'll not have to do anything after you obtain and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to choose a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires only 2 additional clicks after you fill the required data for the certificate.

You can select this option in the SSL order wizard which you will find in the Hepsia hosting CP 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 minute you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to protect the data of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the data in any way.
