Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol that is used to encrypt the data exchanged between a server and its users. The practical application of employing an SSL is to secure the information which clients submit on your site - a login page, a payment page if you run an online store, and so on. Any data they type in in any box on the Internet site will be submitted safely to the server, so their login or payment information will be protected from being accessed by unauthorized individuals. In general, an SSL certificate needs a dedicated IP address to be set up, meaning that the overall cost for your presence online will be bigger. While this may not be an issue for a larger company, it may matter for a non-profit organization or a small online shop which does not generate big income if additional money should be spent. That 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 Shared Hosting
Since we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting plans, you can very easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with only several mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, therefore 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 kind of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been set up particularly for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the sole difference shall be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your website. As our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the instant it is issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you'll be able to have a risk-free and trustworthy site without having to spend more money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host an Internet site inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you'd like to secure the info of your website visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can pick this option in the SSL order wizard which you'll find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even choose the certificate to be set up for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to secure the info of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the info in any way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that your website will not be accessible if you type the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
