Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol used to encode the information exchanged between a hosting server and its users. The practical application of employing an SSL is to secure the info that clients submit on your Internet site - a login page, a payment page if you run an Internet store, and so forth. Any information they input in any box on the website will be submitted safely and securely to the server, so their login or payment information will be protected from being accessed by unauthorized individuals. Usually, 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 an issue for a larger enterprise, it might matter for a non-profit organization or a small online store that doesn't generate big revenue if additional money should be spent. That is the 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 Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to use this option with all our cloud web hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. If you prefer to work with an SSL from our company, everything will be arrange automatically and you won't have to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to choose a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires only 2 additional clicks after you fill the needed info for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL won't be impacted in any way and any info which visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The sole difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever seek to access it this way rather than typing your domain name within the web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host a website inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you'd like to preserve the information of your website visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can select this option within the SSL order wizard that you'll find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even pick the certificate to be set up for the particular domain name 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 give you the chance to preserve the information of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the information in any way. The sole main difference from using a dedicated address is that your site shall not accessible if you input the shared IP instead of the domain/subdomain within the Internet browser address bar.
