Secure Server

Secure Server Overview


The Secure Server option provides you with instructions for setting up a Secure Server through Verisign or Thawte.  Verisign and Thawte are companies that provide digital certificates used for secure transactions.


Step-by-step directions are provided within the Secure Server Manager.



How To Set up Secure Server on Your Site:


1.             From the Control Panel, select the Secure Server option.  The Secure Server manager displays.



2.             Setting up a secure server requires that you purchase a secure digital certificate from either Verisign or Thawte.  This is a two-step process.  Follow the steps outlined in the Secure Server Manager to complete the setup.




·         To test the creation and installation of a secure certificate with “dummy” data, scroll down to the bottom of the screen and select the Generate a Dummy Certificate link in Step 3 of the on-screen procedure.  Follow the instructions that are provided.
