A client of mine wants to implement SSL on their site. They have a number of forms which communicate sensitive/personal information, and want to send the data over a secure channel. I've worked with sites that have SSL certificates already, but never actually implemented one myself. The site runs on WordPress, using a custom theme I created. To the questions:
- Their head of IT says they have a UCC SSL. Is this appropriate for the task? I once purchased an SSL for Magento Go, and I believe it was called an EV SSL, which I imagine is not the same. A quick Google search also seemed to associate UCC with MS servers, not Apache, but I didn't get to dig very deep.
- They are hosted on GoDaddy. I imagine GD probably offers SSL solutions. Is this worth it? Would it be cheaper/better to get an SSL elsewhere and use it? Is that even possible?
- Most importantly, how do I use the SSL on WP once it's set up? Do I just have to redirect the form and processing pages to
https://, or is there something else that needs to be done?
Sorry for the wordiness. Any advice/help is much appreciated.
