If in a previous article I have approached where to get free SSL certificates for your website, let me continue here with step by step instructions on installation. I will be discussing here a particular case that I used on an IX WebHosting shared account. Installation at other web hosts will be different, so it is also good to check their knowledge base for details.
Website security has become a more and more debated topic these days given the multitude of hacking attacks stealing customer information, online surveillance and ranking factors. Until recently, securing a website with an SSL certificate was a bit more expensive than many website owners were prepared to pay. But things have changed and having your website secured has turned to be a free ride if you know what to do.
So you decided to get a website done: you have the idea down on a paper, you know how you would like to organize it, probably the pages and categories to be included in your web project. With the numerous options out there, choosing the perfect web hosting for you and you project could be overwhelming.
