Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol employed to encode the data exchanged between a hosting server and its users. The practical application of employing an SSL is to secure the data that clients submit on your site - a login page, a payment page if you run an online store, and so on. Any info they enter in any box on the website shall be submitted securely to the server, so their login or payment details 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 online presence shall be bigger. While this may not be a problem for a larger enterprise, it might matter for a non-profit organization or a small web store which doesn't generate big earnings if additional money should be spent. That's 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 Hosting

Since we offer SSL certificates with our hosting plans, you can quickly secure your website and use a shared IP address with only a couple of clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, therefore if you have a dedicated IP address, you could use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this kind of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate will work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP and the sole difference shall be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your Internet site. Since our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the moment it is issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you could have a risk-free and trustworthy website without having to spend extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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