Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol that is used to encode the data exchanged between a server and its users. The practical application of employing an SSL is to preserve the info which visitors submit on your site - a login page, a payment page if you run an Internet store, and so forth. Any data they input in any box on the website shall be submitted safely to the server, so their login or payment details shall be protected from being accessed by unauthorized individuals. Typically, an SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address to be installed, which means the overall cost for your web presence shall be bigger. While this might not exactly be a problem for a larger enterprise, it may matter for a non-profit organization or a small online store which 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 set up an SSL certificate.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Website Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all of our cloud website hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. When you decide to work with an SSL from our company, everything will be set up automatically and you'll not have to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to pick a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires a maximum of two additional mouse clicks after you fill the required data for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL will not be impacted in any way and any info that visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The only big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it that way as opposed to inputting your domain in the web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host a site inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to preserve the data of your visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP which has been configured for SSL certificates with just a few mouse clicks. You can choose this option within the SSL order wizard which you'll find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can 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 minute you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the chance to secure the info of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the information in any way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that your site won't be accessible if you input the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain in the Internet browser address bar.
