128-Bit SSL Certificate Usage Instructions

Most frequent Internet shoppers are aware of SSL encryption and will only input credit card information into a site that offers this protection. Visitors know that they are using SSL when a small closed lock icon appears in the bottom of the browser window.

Shared Certificates
For most customers a shared SSL certificate will be sufficient. If you're on a UNIX shared hosting plan, you're probably already configured and usage is free. Just point the page that needs to be secured to the following URL:

        https://[server].bostoncomputing.net/~[user]/[path]/[filename]

Where [server] is the name of the server on which your hosting files lie, [user] is your main account username, [path] is the path to your desired secure page from the public_html directory of your account, and lastly [filename] is the name of the file you want to be encrypted.

        http://www.mleearts.com/acquisitions.html   (Insecure)
        https://wellesley.bostoncomputing.net/~mlee/acquisitions.html   (Secure)

Dedicated Certificates
For customers who would prefer to keep their own domain name shown, a dedicated SSL certificate will be necessary. The site must be hosted on a dedicated IP address of its own and there is an additional fee of $299/yr for us to purchase and install it.
