We are constantly linking documents stored to an online store in e-mail notifications instead of sending the files themselves. For a long time, we've just used the file storage on one of our Wordpress sites but I'd prefer to go about it a little more professionally.
I have a hosted site with a static IP, DNS record under our main domain to point to that site and plan to just use http://HOSTED_SITE/File.extension
(waiting for DNS to populate).
Should I put up a SSL certificate for the store or am I able to? Any reason why someone would want/need to pull down hosted files from a site secured with a SSL?
Is there any other feedback as things I should consider before moving forward?
