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 data that visitors submit on your site - a login page, a payment page if you run an online store, and so forth. Any information they type in in any box on the site shall be submitted securely to the server, so their login or payment information will be protected from being accessed by unauthorized individuals. Typically, an SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address to be installed, which implies the overall cost for your presence online will be higher. While this might not be an issue for a larger enterprise, it might matter for a non-profit organization or a small online shop that doesn't generate big profits if additional money should be spent. This is the key reason why we've taken advantage of an extension known 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 Shared Hosting
You can use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each shared hosting
package which we offer and regardless if the SSL is obtained through our company or through a third-party business. If the SSL is bought on our end, not only could you choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also choose our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall install it for you within a few seconds and you'll not have to do anything by hand. The one difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your website won't appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but other than that, everything will be the same. With this feature you'll be able to protect the info of your clients and have a reliable site without the extra expense for a dedicated IP address.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host an Internet site in a semi-dedicated hosting
account from our company and you wish to protect the data 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 pick this option within the SSL order wizard which you'll find inside the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even pick the certificate to be set up for the specific domain name
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 chance to secure the info of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the data in any way. The sole difference from using a dedicated address is that your site won't be accessible if you type the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain inside the Internet browser address bar.
