Shared SSL Howto

SureWest Internet has made it possible for clients to access their website in a secure mode using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). This allows security to be added to your site immediately, without the added expense of purchasing your own certificate.

How to use the Shared SSL certificate:

The above link will show the website in secure mode (notice the "lock" icon in your web browser). This means all communications between the web browser and the server are encrypted. SSL is commonly used when accepting credit card information, or when a web page contains information you wish to keep confidential.

If you want to switch your website from normal to SSL mode, make sure that you first link to it using the FULL URL PATH of the server. Once you have switched, we recommend you use relative urls. To switch from SSL back to normal, simply link to your normal domain name again using the FULL URL PATH.
