Chapter Fifteen - Secure Socket Layer

Normally, any text (such as your credit card number) sent from your browser to the web server is sent as plain text. This means that a hacker could potentially intercept (however unlikely) the information sent from your browser and read it. Therefore, by using the secure server, the information is encrypted before it is sent from your browser. It would be practically impossible for anyone to decrypt it without knowing the key.

The following example uses yourdomain as the name of your domain and any page as the name of the order form or the page you wish to be secure.

Use the following url to call your pages via the secure server.

Please contact Support@OnTimeHost.Com to find out what secure server your account is on. 

The above page would be accessed from the normal web server as:

Go to and click on FormMail and follow the instructions for installing your formmail.

If you are calling the formmail through the secure server, your action line and other code will look like the following:

<FORM METHOD=POST ACTION="https://YourDomain.Com/cgi-ben/FormMail.cgi">
<input type=hidden name="recipient" value="">
<input type=hidden name="subject" value="Order">
<input type=hidden name="return_link_url" value="">
<input type=hidden name="return_link_title" value="Back to Your Page">

The last two lines allow a link back to your main page - thus they get a report of what they ordered and a link.

It's important that you call your order page through a secure URL (HTTPS) in order for it to work properly
