Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol used to encrypt the information exchanged between a web server and its users. The practical application of using an SSL is to secure the information that site visitors submit on your site - a login page, a payment page if you run an online store, and so forth. Any information they input in any box on the Internet site shall be submitted securely to the server, so their login or payment information shall be protected from being accessed by unauthorized individuals. Typically, an SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address to be set up, which implies the overall cost for your presence online shall be higher. While this might not exactly be an issue for a larger company, it might matter for a non-profit organization or a small online store which doesn't generate big income if additional money should be spent. That is the key reason why we've taken advantage of an extension known 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 Website Hosting
You shall be able to use this option with all of our shared website hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you decide to use an SSL from our company, everything shall be arrange automatically and you will not have to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to pick a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires a maximum of two additional mouse clicks after you fill the required information for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL shall not be influenced in any way and any details that site visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the same exact way. The one difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it that way instead of typing your domain within the web browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host an Internet site inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to secure the information of your site visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with just a few clicks. You can choose this option within the SSL order wizard which you'll find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even choose the certificate to be installed for the given domain or subdomain automatically by our system. In this 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 protect the info of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the info in any way. The one difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site won't be accessible if you enter the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain within the browser address bar.
