Secure Socket Layers (SSL)

SSL (Secure Socket Layers) make sure that the information being sent to and from the website is unreadable by anyone in between.

SSL is the encryption method used to ensure secure transactions on the Internet. Information from our secure server is encrypted to and from the customer. This means any sensitive information (eg: credit card information) can be sent safely.

Use our free shared SSL certificates

You may use (for no cost) our shared SSL certificates (https://www.safetopay.com and https://www.securetopay.com) which will give you an URL such as https://www.safetopay.com/yourdomain.com/ or https://www.securetopay.com/yourdomain.com/

Shared SSL access is free, and setup by default on all Linux hosting accounts. For example, if your hosting account was on a Linux server with a domain name of handles.com and the web page you wish to secure is called order.htm your web page would be located at https://www.safetopay.com/handles.com/order.htm

On our Windows servers you would use the shared SSL certificate (https://www.securetopay.com) which will give you an URL such as https://www.securetopay.com/yourdomain.com/. For example, if your hosting account was for handles.com and the page you wish to secure is called order.htm your web page would be located at https://www.securetopay.com/handles.com/order.htm

Shared SSL access can be enabled upon request for Windows hosting accounts. Please Contact Support to request this.

You may also purchase your own private SSL certificate which will give you an URL such as https://www.yourdomain.com. There is an initial purchase and setup cost, cost for your own IP address, as well as annual costs for the yearly renewal of the SSL certificate.
