How to Access the Shared SSL Certificate

Our servers have a shared SSL certificate that all our clients are free to use to secure their pages with 128 bit SSL encryption. This certificate is signed for our server and so any page you want to use SSL on (HTTPS), must use the server domain name instead of your own.

To use the shared SSL certificate, simply link to https://saturn.websitewelcome.com/~ACCOUNTNAME. For example, if your domain name is mydomainname.com and your account name for your hosting package is mydomain you would enable SSL by directing users to https://saturn.websitewelcome.com/~mydomain. If you directed users to your own domain name (https://www.mydomainname.com) users would receive a warning that the certificate doesn't match (again, because it is signed specifically for our server).

If you obtain your own digital certificate signed for your domain name, your users would not get the warning because the certificate and website would match.
