Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol employed to encrypt the info exchanged between a server and its users. The practical application of using an SSL is to preserve the information which clients submit on your site - a login page, a payment page if you run an online store, and so forth. Any data they enter in any box on the website will be submitted safely to the server, so their login or payment details shall be protected from being accessed by unauthorized people. Normally, an SSL certificate needs a dedicated IP address to be installed, which means the overall cost for your online presence shall be higher. While this might not exactly be an issue for a larger business, it may matter for a non-profit organization or a small web store that doesn't generate big earnings if additional money should be spent. This is the reason why we have taken advantage of an extension known as Server Name Indication (SNI) and we have made it possible to use a shared server IP address to set up an SSL certificate.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Website Hosting
As we offer SSL certificates with our shared website hosting solutions, you can easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with just several mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you could use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for this type of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, that has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the sole difference will be that if anyone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your site. Due to the fact that our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically the moment it's issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you'll be able to have a secure and reliable Internet site without spending more money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host a site within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to secure the info of your visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with just several clicks. You can choose this option within the SSL order wizard that you will find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even select the certificate to be installed for the particular domain or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the chance to protect the info of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the data in any way. The sole main difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site will not be accessible if you type the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain within the Internet browser address bar.
