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 employing an SSL is to preserve the data that customers 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 will be submitted securely to the server, so their login or payment data will be protected from being accessed by unauthorized people. Normally, an SSL certificate needs a dedicated IP address to be installed, meaning that the overall cost for your online presence shall be bigger. While this might not be an issue for a larger enterprise, it might matter for a non-profit organization or a small online store that doesn't generate big profits if additional money should be spent. This is the key reason why we have 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 install an SSL certificate.
Shared SSL IP in Hosting
Given that we offer SSL certificates with our hosting packages, 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, you'll be able to use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this type of a service, you could use the shared IP, which has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP and the one difference will be that if anyone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your Internet site. Given that our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically as soon as it's issued, so you will not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you'll be able to have a secure and trustworthy website without having to spend extra cash for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host a site in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to protect the data of your site visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with just several clicks. You can pick this option in the SSL order wizard which you will find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even choose the certificate to be set up for the specific 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 grant you the chance to preserve the information of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the data in any way. The one main difference from using a dedicated address is that your site shall not accessible if you input the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
