Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol that is used to encode the info exchanged between a server and its users. The practical application of using an SSL is to preserve the data which customers submit on your website - a login page, a payment page if you run a web-based store, and so forth. Any info they enter 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 individuals. Typically, an SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address to be set up, which suggests the overall cost for your online presence shall be bigger. While this might not exactly be a problem for a larger firm, it may matter for a non-profit organization or a small online shop which does not 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've made it possible to use a shared server IP address to set up an SSL certificate.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting
Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting solutions, you can easily secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with only a couple of mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, therefore if you have a dedicated IP address, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for this sort of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been set up particularly for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the one difference will be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your site. Since our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically as soon as it's issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you could have a risk-free and trustworthy website without spending extra money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host an Internet site inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you would like to preserve the info of your website visitors, you shall be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with only several mouse clicks. You can select this option within the SSL order wizard which you'll find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you could even select the certificate to be set up for the particular domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we offer you the chance to secure the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the data in any way. The sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that your Internet site won't be accessible if you enter the shared IP address instead of the domain/subdomain within the browser address bar.
