What is the difference between Shared SSL and Personal SSL?
A Shared SSL certificate is automatically created for all the websites (excluding the “Fusion Starter” package). It is a long name, for example https://pro.webfusion-secure.co.uk/~mydomain.com/, and because it is a subdirectory, your links will not automatically work. All of your files and directories can be accessed in this way
Personal SSL is sold separately, you get an IP for your website, and your own SSL certificate, https://secure.mydomain.com.
What is the cost of Shared SSL?
Shared SSL is free for all customers on all packages other than the “Fusion Starter” package.
Which packages is Shared SSL available on?
Shared SSL is available on all packages other than the “Fusion Starter” package.
How can I access my website over Shared SSL?
This depends on which package you have taken out, and on which operating system. The following table will help you to work this out:
- Windows Fusion Professional
- Windows 2008 Fusion Professional
- Windows Fusion Business
- Windows 2008 Fusion Business
- Windows Fusion Developer
- Windows 2008 Fusion Developer
- Any Linux Fusion package (except Starter)
Tip: Where you should replace ‘mydomain.com’ with the name of your domain, but you must leave the ~ before it.
