Secure Certificate Details

cPanel Users:
To access the shared secure certificate, you will need make the links to the pages that you want to secure, use the following format. The secure certificate address that you use depends on the server you are on, and the different servers are listed below.


LIBRA Server:

https://secure60.elinuxservers.com/~username
[Change username to your cpanels login username.]

This will display your homepage, and will display the same page as http://www.yourwebsite.co.nz/index.html. If you have a page that is normally accessed at http://www.yourwebsite.co.nz/links.html, the secure version of this page would be https://secure.inameservers.net/~username/links.html


CONCORDE Server:

https://secure42.securebuyers.com/~username
[Change username to your cpanels login username.]

This will display your homepage, and will display the same page as http://www.yourwebsite.co.nz/index.html. If you have a page that is normally accessed at http://www.yourwebsite.co.nz/links.html, the secure version of this page would be https://secure42.securebuyers.com/~username/links.html


Note the https header, as different from the standard http. As you may have guessed, the s stands for "secure" and a lock icon should appear in your web browser when you load your page. If you get a secure error on your Website when you use SSL, read below about possible reasons.

Corporate & Business Plan Users:

You can setup access to the shared secure certificate by logging into your control panel and going to your websites settings. Full details for setting it up can be found by click here.

Why do I get error messages when I try to use SSL?

There are a number of precautions to take when setting up pages in a secure environment. These include:

1. If you are loading images using an absolute URL, make sure the URL is also using a secure server address e.g. instead of src="http://path/" use  src="https://path/"

2. If you are posting to a script through a form using an absolute URL, make sure the URL is also using a secure server address e.g. instead of action="http://path" use action="https://path"

3. Secure pages within a non-secure frameset won´t work. The whole frameset must be secure.

4. If you are using Flash, you should use their secure address rather than the normal address e.g. instead of codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/..." your should use codebase="https://download.macromedia.com/..."
