Tomorrow I will be getting a "test" web hosting account. It will have a Dedicated IP address, but no domain yet.
One of the things I will need to test on my Seminar Registration website is whether my HTTPS connection is working properly. (I want all log-in information encrypted.)
To get an SSL Certificate, the web host requires you give out a full name, company name, address, etc. I am unwilling to do this for a test account.
How can I test my HTTPS connection without an SSL Certificate?
I believe someone said on here the other week that I could just make one up myself for testing purposes?!
Is that true?
And if so, how would I do that?
Obviously when my site goes "live", I will have a real SSL Certificate, but for now I don't want to give out all of my info for privacy reasons and because I need to work out some things with my Registered Agent.
P.S. This will be on a "Shared" Server, but with a Dedicated IP. Not sure if that affects how you would make up a "test" SSL Certificate?!
