Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol that is used to encode the info exchanged between a hosting server and its users. The practical application of employing an SSL is to preserve the data that clients submit on your site - a login page, a payment page if you run an Internet store, etc. Any information they input in any box on the site will be submitted safely to the server, so their login or payment details shall be protected from being accessed by unauthorized people. Typically, an SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address to be set up, which means the overall cost for your presence online will be higher. While this might not be a problem for a larger enterprise, it may matter for a non-profit organization or a small online store that does not generate big income if additional money should be spent. This is the reason why we have taken advantage of an extension called 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 Hosting
Since we offer SSL certificates with our hosting packages, you can effortlessly secure your site and use a shared IP address with just a few clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, hence 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 sort of a service, you could use the shared IP, which has been configured 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 somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your website. Due to the fact that our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically as soon as it is issued, so you will not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you'll be able to have a protected and trustworthy website without spending more money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host a site within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you'd like to secure the info of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with just a couple of mouse clicks. You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard which you will find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even pick the certificate to be installed for the specific 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 opportunity to preserve the information of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the data in any way. The only main difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site won't be accessible if you enter the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain in the Internet browser address bar.
