Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol that is used to encode the info exchanged between a web server and its users. The practical application of using an SSL is to secure the information that visitors submit on your website - a login page, a payment page if you run an Internet store, and so on. Any data they enter in any box on the website shall be submitted safely to the server, so their login or payment information shall be protected from being accessed by unauthorized people. Usually, an SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address to be installed, which implies the overall cost for your web presence will be higher. While this might not exactly be an issue for a larger company, it may matter for a non-profit organization or a small online store that doesn't generate big revenue if additional money should be spent. This is the key reason why we've taken advantage of an extension referred to 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 Website Hosting
Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our website hosting packages, you can effortlessly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just several mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, thus if you have a dedicated IP address, you could use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for this kind of a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference will be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your site. Due to the fact that our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically as soon as it is issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you can have a protected and reliable site without having to spend extra money for that.
