SSL SNI Certificate manage by hosting provider HTTP to HTTPS
Hosting providers are now offering a FREE SSL certificate to their hosting customers. This type of SSL certificate is usually of the SNI SSL type. SNI stands for (Server Name Indication). This is end to end encryption from browser to server. Using SNI SSL certificate gives the ability to provide SSL in shared hosting environments, such as shared linux website hosting. The SNI SSL uses only one IP address and has separate SSL certificates for each domain. An advantage of this type of SSL is hosting providers are able to save precious IP v4 addresses and still provide HTTPS services.
