Ssl Certificates Tutorial – Your Questions…


David asks…

Help!!! web site design/shopping Cart etc etc?

I am going crazy. I never thought it would be this hard
I’m trying to build a website with a shopping cart
so far I have my domain and hosting, I have started building a site with rvsitebuilder from Cpanel. It’s not on the internet yet Im still working on it.
I am stuck on this FTP stuff with filezilla. but the main thing at the moment is the shopping cart. I downloaded Cube cart and I am trying to change the skin/template. I want it look a bit like my site Aqua. I have looked on the net and read heaps of tutorials and i just don’t understand. I really need someone to walk me through it .
other things I don’t understand is do I need a ssL certificate?how do I get one and do I need “veri sign”. Basically what do I need to use pay pal for excepting credit cards securely? I am really sorry to who ever reads this for my lack of knowledge. I am going crazy and feel quite stupid.
Thank you for your help

SSL: In order for SSL to work, you need to get your site certificate signed. The certificate is basically a digital document declaring your identity. The certificate needs to be signed by a certificate authority (CA) who verifies you are who you say you are.

Verisign is a CA, and they can sign your certificate for a fee.

PayPal: They can accept cc orders, but you need to sign up for a business account, and merchant account. Https://

Their fee will be a percentage of the transaction amount. The rate is listed on the website I linked to.

As far as everything else, I can help you. Get my IM by viewing my YA profile, contact me, and I will get you my real email. We’ll discuss your situation, and post the results here for others to reference. It’s why this site is here anyway. 🙂

Hope this helps!
