Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol used to encode the information exchanged between a hosting server and its users. The practical application of employing an SSL is to preserve the data which visitors submit on your site - a login page, a payment page if you run an online store, and so forth. Any info they input in any box on the site will be submitted securely to the server, so their login or payment information shall be protected from being accessed by unauthorized people. In general, an SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address to be set up, which implies the overall cost for your presence online shall be bigger. While this might not be a problem for a larger company, it might matter for a non-profit organization or a small online store that does not generate big profits if additional money should be spent. This is the key 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 set up an SSL certificate.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Website Hosting
Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud website hosting
plans, you can easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with just a couple of mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for such a service, you could use the shared IP, which has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the one difference will be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your website. As our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically the moment it's 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 risk-free and reliable website without having to spend more money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host a site inside a semi-dedicated hosting
account from our company and you wish to protect the info of your website visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with just several mouse clicks. You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard which you will find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even select the certificate to be installed for the particular domain
or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the opportunity to secure the data of your 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 site shall not accessible if you type the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
