Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol used to encrypt the info exchanged between a hosting server and its users. The practical application of using an SSL is to protect the info which customers submit on your Internet site - a login page, a payment page if you run a web-based store, and so forth. Any data they input in any box on the Internet site will be submitted safely and securely to the server, so their login or payment details will be protected from being accessed by unauthorized individuals. Normally, an SSL certificate needs a dedicated IP address to be installed, which implies the overall cost for your web presence will be higher. While this may not be a problem for a larger firm, it might matter for a non-profit organization or a small web store which doesn't generate big revenue if additional money should be spent. That's the key reason why we've taken advantage of an extension referred to 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

Given that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud web hosting packages, you can easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with only a few clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, hence if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this sort of a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP and the one difference shall be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your site. Due to the fact that our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically once it is issued, so you will not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you can have a secure and trustworthy site without spending extra cash for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host a website within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you wish to protect the info of your site visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with only a few clicks. You can pick this option in the SSL order wizard that you'll find in the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even pick the certificate to be set up for the particular domain name 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 grant you the chance to secure the info of your 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 won't be accessible if you input the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
