TYS Support Center - Using SSL



This document will answer your questions about our SSL certificate options
 
Q: What does SSL mean?
A: SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. It encrypts all data between our server where your site is stored, and the browser that the viewer is looking at.
 
Q: How do I get SSL?
A: Shared SSL is $100 per year on both Windows and Linux servers.  You will need to submit a support ticket at top of any of our web pages request that SSL be set up
Q: What will the URL to my shared SSL look like?
A: Our SSL is on a shared certificate. Your secure URL will look something like one of these:

https://tysrr.net/~username
https://tysrr.net/~username/your-domain-name

where username is the username you are assigned at account setup.
 

Q: How do I get SSL that looks like https://tys.us?
A: For this, you would need to purchase a secure certificate for your domain. This requires going to an outside certificate provider (we can recommend one for you) and giving them some information regarding you and your company. You will pay them their rates for the certificate. You will also need us to generate a CSR (certificate signing request) and set up the secure certificate on our servers. There is a $100 one-time fee associated with this that we will charge your account. Submit a support ticket at top of any of our web pages when you are ready for us to generate a CSR, and we will email that to you in text form so that you can give the to your certificate provider.
 
Q: How do I upload to my secure site?
A: All of the material in your regular directory is mapped to your secure site. This means that you don't have to upload to a separate FTP address for your pages to be secure. All of your web will be secure from the secure URL. For example, https://tys.us/ will point to your index page. If you have a page in your root directory called mypage.html, the secure link for it would be https://tys.us/mypage.html.
 
Q: How do I link my regular pages to my secure pages?
A: You would link your secure pages the same way you would your non-secure pages, except using the secure links as described above.
   
   
  If you have additional questions, please submit a support ticket at top of any of our web pages.
