how to use my new ssl

Hi,

This is probably a stupid question but here goes.

I've never used an ssl before but have just got a cretificate for a new site I am working on.

Its setp in iis etc for the site....

I have a checkout page.

How the heck to do I protect this one via the ssl?

Obviously I dont need every page to be encrypted but do with the checkout page.

I'd appreciate some advice on this?

I'm using c# by the way.

Thanks

It wouldn't be a C# setting, it would be an IIS setting. Which version of IIS will you be running?

If you followed the steps on that page, then you should be able to test your site in your browser. Be sure to use a "https" when you test  = )

Right what I'm really after is a general understanding....

So the website has it's ssl.....how do I get just one(or two) pages to use the secure environment.

Most of my udrls will be http:www.mydomain.com/.....

Is it just a case of for any pages, like my checkout, that need the use the secure page that my link to it has to be hardcoded as https://.....?

I strongly recommend to either protect the entire site or protect entire directories. While it is possible to SSL enable a single URL, it is a PITA to maintain and configuration omissions will creep in.

Protecting your entire site is best in terms of perceived security in the minds of your customers, and modern computers do the encryption/decryption overhead effortlessly.
