provides visitors to your website with the confidence to .municate securely via an encrypted session. For .panies wishing to conduct secure e-.merce, such as receiving credit card numbers or other sensitive information online, SSL is essential. For SSL to work a valid signed SSL certificate is essential. Certificates are a standard way of binding a public key to a name. Public key encryption is a tactic that uses a pair of asymmetric keys for encryption and decryption. Each pair of keys consists of a public key and a private key. The public key is made public by distributing it widely. The private key is never distributed; it is always kept secret. Data that is encrypted with the public key can be decrypted only with the private key. Conversely, data encrypted with the private key can be decrypted only with the public key. This asymmetry makes public key cryptography so useful. You can generate a self-signed certificate and use it for some time until the certificate "signed" by a trusted external authority VeriSign certificate authority or GeoTrust Site Seals And it will be ready. To enable SSL for your website with self-signed certificate: 1.Click on the Site tab; 2.Select Website Settings. Your website General Settings appear on the screen; 3.Click the Secure Website tab.

Notes: Netscape and Mozilla browsers automatically detect whether a website uses encryption of transmitted data or not (as for Internet Explorer, please encourage your website visitors who use IE to use Internet Explorer 5.0 or later). Thus, if you use a self-signed certificate, your website visitors will be notified that your website uses encryption, but the authority that signed a certificate is not recognized. So if you intend to conduct e-.merce at your website, it is better to obtain an SSL certificate signed by VeriSign or Thawte . Secure website can be enabled only for IP-based website (i.e., a website that does not share an IP address with other websites). So if you have several websites on your server and only one IP address – any of these sites (but only one of them) can be SSL-capable. Go for GeoTrust Power Server ID Wildcard Certificate .
