Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol that is used to encrypt the info exchanged between a web server and its users. The practical application of employing an SSL is to protect 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 data they input in any box on the site shall be submitted securely to the server, so their login or payment information shall be protected from being accessed by unauthorized people. Normally, an SSL certificate needs a dedicated IP address to be set up, which suggests the overall cost for your presence online shall be bigger. While this might not be a problem for a larger firm, it may matter for a non-profit organization or a small web store that does not generate big earnings if additional money should be spent. That's the key reason why we've taken advantage of an extension referred to 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 Hosting
A shared IP can be employed for any SSL certificate, irrespective if you get it from our company or from a different dealer and regardless of the cloud hosting service you have on our end. If you obtain the SSL through us, you will find this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting CP where you could also take full advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option that we offer. If the latter is chosen inside the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you using the specifically configured server shared IP address, therefore once you acquire and approve the SSL, there will not be anything else to do on your end. You can save the cash you'll otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL shall work in the exact same way, so any information the website visitors submit will be encoded. The one difference is that if you type the shared IP address instead of your domain inside an Internet browser, the website won't show up.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host a website in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to secure the information of your visitors, you'll be able to use a shared IP address that has been configured for SSL certificates with only several clicks. You can pick this option within the SSL order wizard that you'll find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even choose the certificate to be installed for the particular domain or subdomain automatically by our system. This way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the chance to secure the info of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the data in any way. The only main difference from using a dedicated address is that your website won't be accessible if you input the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
