New eCommerce Web Hosting Plans with Added Support for osCommerce, and SSL Support!

Since 1999, we have offered eCommerce web hosting services to our diverse clientele. In order to meet the needs of our clients and to stay at the forefront of the web hosting industry, we have updated our eCommerce Web Hosting Plans!

We will continue to offer osCommerce free as part of our eCommerce hosting packages , but we have increased the level of our customer support for osCommerce. While we offer ticketing support in all our plans, if you sign-up for 1 year on our Small Business and Corporate eCommerce web hosting plans, you will get additional telephone support for the initial set-up of osCommerce on your site.

In addition to enhancing our customer support, we have increased disk space and lowered the cost of all our eCommerce web hosting plans. While other web hosting companies may offer shared SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) security , you can purchase a Private SSL Certificate as part of your eCommerce web hosting plan.

SSL: Shared vs. Private

At this point, you might be wondering what SSL is and why you might need it. Basically, SSL provides a secure shopping experience for you customers by having data, such as customer credit information, encrypted before it is sent from the customer’s computer to your web host. Without an SSL certificate, your customers will get a warning message in their browser. With shared SSL, you are essentially using your web host’s SSL Certificate, and your customer’s browser will usually display the webhost’s URL in the secure URL. With a Private SSL, you’ll have a secure URL displayed without the name of your webhost included.
