Secure Server:

Normally, any text (such as a credit card number) sent from your  browser to the web server is sent as plain text. This means that a  hacker  could potentially intercept (however unlikely) the information sent from  your browser and read it. Therefore, by using the secure server, the information  is encrypted before it  is sent from your browser. It would be practically  impossible for anyone to decrypt it without knowing the key.

The following example uses yourdomain as the name of your domain  and page as  the name of the order form or the page you wish to be secure.

Use the following url to call your pages via the secure  server.

https://servername.com/page.html

 

 The above page would be accessed from the normal web  server as:

 http://yourdomain.com/page.html

*SPECIAL NOTE FOR FORMMAIL WITH  THE SECURE SERVER*

If you are calling the formmail through the secure  server, your form method will look like the following:

 https://servername.com/cgi-sys/formmail.pl

(substitute servername  with your servername)

For the implementation of a Secure Server option provides you with a means of implementing encrypted secure web transactions.To request a Secure Server signing certificate contact suppport and ask them to generate an SSL signing request that you can submit to  Verisign or Thawte.  Verisign and  Thawte are companies that provide digital certificates used for secure  transactions.

How To Set up Secure Server on Your Site:

1.  Setting up a secure server requires that you purchase a secure  digital certificate from either Verisign or Thawte.  This is a two-step   request the signing request from support then submit it to verisign or thawte.

2. When the sertification authority has generated and supplied your certificate send it to support and ask them to install it for you.
