SSL Easy Peasy Pleasy ?

  1. Do you get a lot of people wanting SSL certificates?

    I use my site mainly for learning, for teaching myself how to A S Pee :eek:

    Looking at the documentation for SSL it goes something like ... and then your site trusts our site which trusts their site and any site that trusts ....


    I just want so that when the user types a certain URL in their browser they see:

    https:// in the browser's address bar and a little padlock.


    Ideally I would be able to designate certain folders on my site that were secured so only accessible using the https:// protocol

    My main page could go something like:
    if inTheDomainName website1 then redirect to https://website1Folder

    and otherwise the site would operate exactly as it has been doing.

    Plus, I'm a poor poor man (poor ian.. ahhhh) and I use my site mainly for learning (and I have a couple of forums going on) so would it be possible to get the cheaper SSL certificate installed on my (basic plan) website without having to pay over double what I'm paying now to upgrade to the next plan?
  2. unfortunately the installation of an SSL cert is only available on our MAX or ultimate plans, so if you would like to install an SSL you would need to upgrade to one of those plans.

    Having said that, we do have plenty of customers what would like to add an SSL. The SSL certificate you can purchase through our control panel, or you are welcome to purchase else where and use it on your site.
