    Dedicated SSL

    I recently installed a Dedicated SSL Certificate on my website, but address is still http instead of https. Is this normal? I only need the SSL for one page, so do I put https in the link that goes to that page?

    Thanks,

    Samuel

    I'm sure it's a lot more complicated than just doing that. Can your hosting company help?

    If you are using Apache, then you can force using SSL for particular page:
    http://www.askapache.com/htaccess/ap...-examples.html
    http://www.askapache.com/htaccess/ht...-redirect.html
    Obviously you have to fix all links to that page to have https instead of http (which you already did) - moreover all resources in that page CSS/JS/images/flash should be served through https as well, or else your visitors will get ssl error/warning, that your page has "mixed content":
