Using Ssl That Comes With Tch Package


Recommended Posts

I'd like to explore using the SSL feature that is part of my hosting package with TCH. According to your online SSL Help, if I understand correctly:

 

a. I need to have someone "turn on" (enable) the SSL feature for my account.

b. I then decide how to incorporate the SSL refers (https) into my site structure.

 

Got a few questions...

1. Are there any "hidden" charges I might run into using the SSL package that comes with my TCH account?

 

2. Once it's "enabled" for my domain name, then I can choose to use it or not. Correct? It's not going to mess up my site if I *don't* use it (if I leave my URL's as "http")?

 

3. Do I have to use it for my whole site, or can I use it for just individual files/pages and/or directories? The help file seems to suggest the later. And I would prefer to "try it out" on a contact form I have before extending it to any other areas.

You can just use the shared ssl as per the Help site page.

 

Using our Shared SSL

Simply parse your page like this:

 

https://server*.totalchoicehosting.com/~username/

 

where * = your server number

Humm...it sounds like your saying I'd have to use a strict TCH URL that is made up of (1)the server my account is assigned to, (2)the "totalchoicehosting.com" domain name, and (3)my username, as opposed to a URL that consists of my domain name. Is that correct? Edited by denglund1996
