    SSL and Merchant Account

    I'm going to register an SSL certificate and a merchant account tomorrow. I have a question about the SSL certificate.

    Well, the link for my billing system is

    "http://www.midpulse.com/support"

    When signing up for the SSL certificate, should I register it for

    "http://www.midpulse.com"

    or

    "http://www.midpulse.com/support"

    If your visitors are primarily on the www.midpulse.com address, then register an SSL for that domain name. However, if your users typically omit the 'www', then get an SSL cert just for midpulse.com. What you want to avoid are 'Security Certificate Mismatch' pop-up errors.

    You may want to even consider registering secure.midpulse.com in your SSL certificate. Some companies have opted to do so just to make it clear to their clients when they are on a secure portion of their site and when they are not on a secure portion of their site.

    And make sure to use .htaccess to force your users to the one you secure. If you get the ssl with www., force your users to access the site using www.

    Alright, I'll look into that. Thank you.

    One last question, sorry

    When signing up for the SSL..it asks for the server type. It's apache, and it gives apache choices, but one of the choices is also cpanel..should I choose cpanel of that's what we use?

    Code:
    Options +FollowSymLinks 
    RewriteEngine on 
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^domain.com [NC] 
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.domain.com/$1 [L,R=301]
    Just add that to .htaccess and it will redirect the http://domain.com to http://www.domain.com

    you can also consider a wild card cert that will cover any sub domain and the main domain.

    Ohh thank you!

    Would I have to edit the htaccess in every directory with that?

    No, just your root directory. .htaccess works recursively.
