Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol employed to encode the information exchanged between a server and its users. The practical application of employing an SSL is to secure the info that visitors submit on your Internet site - a login page, a payment page if you run an online store, and so on. Any info they input in any box on the Internet site shall be submitted securely to the server, so their login or payment data shall be protected from being accessed by unauthorized individuals. In general, an SSL certificate needs a dedicated IP address to be set up, which means the overall cost for your online presence shall be higher. While this might not exactly be a problem for a larger business, it may matter for a non-profit organization or a small web store which doesn't generate big income 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 Website Hosting

Since we offer SSL certificates with our cloud website hosting plans, you can effortlessly secure your website and use a shared IP address with only several 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 don't have one and you do not want to pay for such 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 very same 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 will not see your website. Since our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically the instant it is issued, so you shall not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you can have a secure and trustworthy site without having to spend 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 would like to preserve the info of your visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can choose this option within the SSL order wizard which you will find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even choose the certificate to be installed for the specific domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the chance to protect the info of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the data in any way. The sole difference from using a dedicated address is that your site shall not accessible if you enter the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain inside the web browser address bar.
