Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol employed to encode the data exchanged between a web server and its users. The practical application of employing an SSL is to protect the data that visitors submit on your Internet site - a login page, a payment page if you run an Internet store, and so forth. Any information they input in any box on the site shall be submitted safely and securely to the server, so their login or payment data shall be protected from being accessed by unauthorized people. Typically, an SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address to be installed, meaning that the overall cost for your online presence will be higher. While this may not be an issue for a larger business, it might matter for a non-profit organization or a small online shop which does not generate big income 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 have made it possible to use a shared server IP address to install an SSL certificate.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Website Hosting

Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud website hosting packages, you can effortlessly secure your website and use a shared IP address with only a couple of clicks. The option will be available during the order process, therefore if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this sort of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, that has been configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference shall be that if someone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your Internet site. Given that our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically once it is issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you could have a secure and trustworthy Internet site without spending extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host a website inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you would like to secure the information of your website visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with only a few mouse clicks. You can select this option in the SSL order wizard which you shall find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even choose the certificate to be set up for the given domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the chance to protect the information of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the data in any way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that your website won't be accessible if you enter the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain within the web browser address bar.
