Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol that is used to encode the information exchanged between a hosting server and its users. The practical application of employing an SSL is to preserve the info that site visitors submit on your site - a login page, a payment page if you run a web-based store, and so forth. Any content they type in in any box on the Internet site shall be submitted safely to the server, so their login or payment information will be protected from being accessed by unauthorized people. Usually, an SSL certificate needs a dedicated IP address to be set up, which suggests the overall cost for your presence online will be bigger. While this might 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 earnings if additional money should be spent. That's the main reason why we have taken advantage of an extension called 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 Shared Hosting

You shall be able to use this option with all of our shared hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. When you prefer to work with an SSL from our company, everything can be set up automatically and you'll not need to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to choose a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires only 2 additional clicks after you fill the needed details for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL shall not be affected in any way and any data which site visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the same exact way. The one big difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever attempt to access it in this way rather than entering your domain name within the Internet browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host a site inside a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company and you wish to secure the data of your visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP that has been configured for SSL certificates with just several mouse clicks. You can choose this option within the SSL order wizard that you will find within the Hepsia hosting CP and you could even select the certificate to be set up for the given domain name or subdomain automatically by our system. In this way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the chance to protect the information of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the data in any way. The only big difference from using a dedicated address is that your website won't be accessible if you type the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain inside the browser address bar.
