Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol that is used to encode the info exchanged between a hosting server and its users. The practical application of employing an SSL is to protect the info which visitors submit on your Internet site - a login page, a payment page if you run an Internet store, and so forth. Any content they type in in any box on the Internet site shall be submitted safely and securely to the server, so their login or payment details shall be protected from being accessed by unauthorized people. Usually, an SSL certificate needs a dedicated IP address to be installed, which means the overall cost for your web presence will be bigger. While this may not be a problem for a larger business, it may matter for a non-profit organization or a small online store that does not generate big revenue if additional money should be spent. That's the reason why we've taken advantage of an extension called 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 Web Hosting

As we offer SSL certificates with our shared web hosting plans, you can effortlessly secure your site and use a shared IP address with only a few clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, so if you have a dedicated IP, 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 could use the shared IP, which has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference shall be that if anyone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your website. Due to the fact that our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically as soon as it's issued, so you'll not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you could have a risk-free and trustworthy Internet site without spending more money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host a website inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you wish to protect the info of your visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with only several mouse clicks. You can select this option in the SSL order wizard which you'll find within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even choose the certificate to be installed for the given domain or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the opportunity to preserve the info of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the information in any way. The one big difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site shall not accessible if you input the shared IP address as opposed to the domain/subdomain inside the Internet browser address bar.
