Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol that is used to encode the information exchanged between a hosting server and its users. The practical application of employing an SSL is to preserve the info that site visitors submit on your Internet site - a login page, a payment page if you run a web-based store, and so forth. Any information they input in any box on the site will be submitted safely and securely to the server, so their login or payment information shall be protected from being accessed by unauthorized individuals. Typically, an SSL certificate needs a dedicated IP address to be set up, which means the overall cost for your presence online will be bigger. While this might not exactly be a problem for a larger company, it might matter for a non-profit organization or a small online store that doesn't generate big earnings if additional money should be spent. That is the main reason why we've taken advantage of an extension known as Server Name Indication (SNI) and we've made it possible to use a shared server IP address to set up an SSL certificate.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting

Since we offer SSL certificates with our cloud web hosting plans, you can effortlessly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just a couple of clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, therefore if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for such a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been set up particularly for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the one difference shall be that if someone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your website. Due to the fact that our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically as soon as it's issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you can have a risk-free and trustworthy website without spending extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host a website within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to secure the information of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with several clicks. You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard that you'll find in the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even select the certificate to be installed for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. 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 opportunity to preserve the information of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the information in any way. The sole difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site won't be accessible if you type the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain in the Internet browser address bar.
