Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol that is used to encode the info exchanged between a web server and its users. The practical application of employing an SSL is to protect the information that visitors submit on your website - a login page, a payment page if you run an online store, and so on. Any info they input in any box on the website will be submitted safely and securely to the server, so their login or payment information shall be protected from being accessed by unauthorized people. Typically, an SSL certificate needs a dedicated IP address to be set up, meaning that the overall cost for your web presence will be bigger. While this might not exactly 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 earnings if additional money should be spent. That is 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 Shared Web Hosting

Since we offer SSL certificates with our shared web hosting packages, you can very easily secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with only a few mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, thus if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you don't 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 specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same 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 will not see your site. As our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically once it's issued, so you will not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you can have a risk-free and trustworthy site without having to spend extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host a website within a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to secure the information of your website visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with just a couple of clicks. You can pick this option inside the SSL order wizard that you shall find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even select the certificate to be installed for the given domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the chance to preserve the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the info in any way. The one big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site won't be accessible if you type the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain in the Internet browser address bar.
