SSL/https questions
« on: November 25, 2010, 01:16:30 AM »
If someone were to type www.domain.com or domain.com into the browser's address bar, would it default to http or https?

Do I access a different ftp for https or does everything just keep getting uploaded the way I have been?

If I wanted to serve the sites logo in ssl for the paypal cart, how would I would reference it as?

Q. If someone were to type www.domain.com or domain.com into the browser's address bar, would it default to http or https?

A. When you type in domain.com or domain.com, it will currently default to http. There are ways to change it but it is quite advanced

Q. Do I access a different ftp for https or does everything just keep getting uploaded the way I have been?

A. No, you do not need to access a different ftp for https. The use of a SSL certificate allows for a secure transfer connect from your customers to access your website. The files on your FTP do not change nor is put on a different server.

Q. If I wanted to serve the sites logo in ssl for the PayPal cart, how would I would reference it as?

A. Yes, it is possible, for example

https://www.domain.com/test.png

You will see that this picture is transferred securely since the SSL certificate is present.
