Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol that is used to encrypt the data exchanged between a hosting server and its users. The practical application of employing an SSL is to secure the info which site visitors submit on your Internet site - a login page, a payment page if you run an online store, etc. Any data they input in any box on the website shall be submitted safely and securely to the server, so their login or payment information shall be protected from being accessed by unauthorized people. In general, an SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address to be installed, meaning that the overall cost for your online presence shall be bigger. While this may not be a problem for a larger enterprise, it may matter for a non-profit organization or a small online shop that doesn't generate big profits 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've made it possible to use a shared server IP address to install an SSL certificate.
Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting
You will be able to use this option with all our website hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. When you choose to use an SSL from our company, everything can be arrange automatically and you will not need to do anything after you obtain and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to pick a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires a maximum of 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the required data for the certificate. The appropriate functioning of the SSL shall not be influenced in any way and any information that site visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the very same way. The sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it this way as opposed to inputting your domain in the web browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host an Internet site inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to protect the information of your website visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with just a few mouse clicks. You can choose this option in the SSL order wizard that you will find within 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. In this way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP the moment 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 data in any way. The only main difference from using a dedicated address is that your website shall not accessible if you enter the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain in the Internet browser address bar.
