In webhosting sites they say like this: features: ssl, ssh, etc. Does that mean i can setup a proxy starts with https, such as a cgi proxy, then I can use it and encrypt all data?

If the ISP says they have ssl, then they allow you to set up a Web server which can have an SSL certificate, and be reached via HTTPS.  SSH is for encrypted telnet access, it doesn't sound as if you're trying to do that.

However, if you want to set up that Web server as a proxy, that's another step.  My guess is that most ISPs don't allow users access to that kind of configuration, but some will.  Since it's a somewhat unusual request, you'll have to contact the ISP to see if they will let you do it, or if they'll set it up as a proxy for you.

Also, if an ISP says it has ssl and ssh, that doesn't say whether they have cgi capabilities for customers.  

My suggestion is that you research all these acronyms and figure out which ones you are interested in.  Then start asking ISPs if they can support the configuration you want.
