I am marketing a book I have privately published.  I would like to receive encrypted credit card numbers on a form page such that I could sell books on line.  Can anyone tell me how this is accomplished? I see the software companies doing it all the time. Thanx

You need a server that supports SSL (ie. a Web server that supports HTTPS protocol). Most commercial servers (like Netscape, IIS, etc.) support this protocol. You will also need to purchase a certificate from certificate agency (for $200-$300 per year) and install it.

If you are using a Web hosting service, they should already have this available (usual at an extra fee per month).

When a Netscape or IE browser user sends a form to a secure server, there is an indication that this is sent encrypted (like a solid key in that status line of Netscape Navigator).
