    Hello, i need help, im getting confused!
    Im going to be setting up an online shop using digishop, i need to make the site sure using a ssl certificate and a secure url, im wondering what hosting i would require, would this be a dedicated server? or do some hosting companies offer to secure the site.

    Many thanks in advanced people
    David

    Nearly any host will be able to offer SSL hosting, although you'll want to buy your own SSL certificate.

    An SSL certificate identifies your site as secure. Hosts offer SSL certificates for most shared hosting, but as they are not for your specific domain, they do not provide the same level of security as perceived by end-users.

    If you are starting out in web design, there's no need for you to have an SSL certificate. Even I don't have one.
