There are many advantages to having your own Dedicated SSL Certificate:
- Maintain the same URL - By eliminating users from using a common generic URL you keep the visitor focused on purchasing your products and not figuring out who http://servername.webhostingprovider.com/~xsded/store is. A shared SSL will look similar to the previous URL. With a dedicated SSL your users get transported from http://www.yourdomain.com to https://www.yourdomain.com - this helps eliminate doubts they may have about your company.
- Allow for more than just your store - Sometimes a helpdesk, or a secondary ordering location for resellers is necessary
- Works with most eCommerce software - Most online store software are designed to work seamlessly with sites utilizing digital SSL certificates rather than ones which employ a Shared SSL or Chained strategy.
It's easy to see why you should have a Dedicated SSL Certfiicate for your site, and Total Server Solutions helps by keeping these certificates affordable. Please visit http://www.totalserversolutions.com for more information on pricing of Dedicated SSL Certificates.
