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 preserve the info that customers submit on your Internet site - a login page, a payment page if you run an Internet store, and so on. Any content they enter in any box on the Internet site will be submitted securely to the server, so their login or payment details shall be protected from being accessed by unauthorized individuals. In general, an SSL certificate needs a dedicated IP address to be set up, which implies the overall cost for your web presence shall be higher. While this may not be an issue for a larger enterprise, it might matter for a non-profit organization or a small web store that does not generate big income if additional money should be spent. This is the reason why we have 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 Cloud Hosting
Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting
packages, you can easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with just a few mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, so 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 type of a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference will be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your Internet site. Given that our system features 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. In this way, you can have a protected and trustworthy website without having to spend extra money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host a website within a semi-dedicated hosting
account from our company and you would like to preserve the information of your visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with just a couple of mouse clicks. You can select this option inside the SSL order wizard which you will find in the Hepsia hosting CP and you can even select the certificate to be set up for the given domain name
or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the chance to secure the info of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the info in any way. The only main difference from using a dedicated address is that your site will not be accessible if you input the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain within the web browser address bar.
