Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol employed to encode the information exchanged between a hosting server and its users. The practical application of employing an SSL is to secure the info which clients submit on your site - a login page, a payment page if you run a web-based store, and so forth. Any information they input in any box on the website shall be submitted safely to the server, so their login or payment details will be protected from being accessed by unauthorized individuals. Normally, an SSL certificate needs a dedicated IP address to be installed, which suggests the overall cost for your online presence will be higher. While this may not be a problem for a larger business, it may matter for a non-profit organization or a small online store which doesn't generate big profits if additional money should be spent. That's the reason why we've taken advantage of an extension called Server Name Indication (SNI) and we have made it possible to use a shared server IP address to set up an SSL certificate.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all of our cloud hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. When you choose to use an SSL from our company, everything can be arrange automatically and you won't have to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to select a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this function requires only 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the required info for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL will not be affected in any way and any data which website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the exact same way. The sole difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever seek to access it in this way instead of entering your domain inside the Internet browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host a website inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you'd like to protect the info of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with only several clicks. You can pick this option inside the SSL order wizard which you shall find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even choose the certificate to be set up for the specific domain or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to secure the info of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the info in any way. The sole difference from using a dedicated address is that your website won't be accessible if you input the shared IP as opposed to the domain/subdomain within the Internet browser address bar.
