Shared SSL Hosting Details

SSL stands for "secure socket layer" and you can use this feature to protect all data exchanged between your Web site and the client. Encrypted data greatly reduces the chances of a malicious third party intercepting and wrongfully using your transmitted information. SSL is seen quite often for online shopping and credit card processing.

When a website is using SSL your visitors access it using https://www.yourwebsite.com instead of http://www.yourwebsite.com Then, information between the browser's machine and your server is encrypted.

There are many technical requirements when installing SSL on a domain name. For example, the domain name will require a unique IP address and requires a certificate from a certification authority such as Thawte or Verisign which can take time to apply for and be very costly.

Shared SSL provides secure Web server access without requiring you to purchase a digital key. This means you will avoid additional cost, but you will be required to access your secure content in a form similar to the following: https://www.secured-server.net/username

As a quick and economical way of providing SSL functionality, you can purchase space on our shared SSL server. Discount Hosting has setup the generic domain name www.secured-server.net and installed SSL functionality on it. We can setup subdirectories on this domain for your secure content. You will be provided with a new account to host your content and you are not obliged to host a Business Account on Discount Hostings's servers. You can host your domain name on another hosting company and have your secure folder with Discount Hosting. FTP access to your directory is available.
