Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol employed to encrypt the information exchanged between a hosting server and its users. The practical application of using an SSL is to secure the info which site visitors submit on your site - a login page, a payment page if you run an Internet store, etc. Any data they type in in any box on the website shall be submitted securely to the server, so their login or payment details shall be protected from being accessed by unauthorized individuals. Usually, an SSL certificate needs a dedicated IP address to be installed, meaning that the overall cost for your presence online shall be higher. While this may not be an issue for a larger company, it may matter for a non-profit organization or a small web store that doesn't generate big revenue if additional money should be spent. This is the main reason why we've taken advantage of an extension referred to as Server Name Indication (SNI) and we've made it possible to use a shared server IP address to install an SSL certificate.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting
Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our shared web hosting
solutions, you can very easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with only a couple of mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, hence if you have a dedicated IP address, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for this kind of a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been configured specifically for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the one difference shall be that if somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your Internet site. As our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically as soon as it is issued, so you shall not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you could have a protected and trustworthy Internet site without having to spend extra money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host a site in a semi-dedicated hosting
account from our company and you wish to secure the information of your website visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with just several clicks. You can select this option within the SSL order wizard that you'll find inside 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 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 data of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the information in any way. The sole difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site will not be accessible if you input the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain inside the web browser address bar.
