Included in our Basic and
Standard Hosting Packages is a Secure Socket Layer feature (SSL) to accept
secure data. URLs for web page files utilizing a SSL start with the prefix
"https://" where the "s" implies that the information
is transferred in secure mode, indicated by a key or a lock in the browser
Secure URL example:
If you had an order form titled orderform.html,
you would store it in a subdirectory located within the httpdocs directory
(titled "secure_orders" in this example). The full url would
look like this: https://www.yourdomain.com/secure_orders/orderform.html.
However, on our servers
standard form processing is done by a perl FormMail CGI script. This FormMail
script returns customer's form submission to you via email, which
is fine for most normal form processing...but is NOT
secure. If you are collecting sensitive data from your forms
(credit card numbers, social security numbers, etc.), you need a Secure
Ordering System CGI script software that instead writes the submitted
form results to a passworded, secure directory on our servers for your
We do offer such script
software in the optional Connected
Order System (COSorder),
which can be installed for an additional $350 one-time charge.
Optional Connected Order System
The COS ordering system features:
- Secure data
handling, including charge numbers for credit cards. System serially-numbers
orders for easy tracking.
- Email confirmation
to customer when order is placed.
- Email notification
to you when new orders are placed.
- Ability to
view, print, save, and remove serially-numbered orders from the
server in a secure mode.
Here's a sample
of what the email confirmation message to the customer looks like:
Subject: Your Order
Thank you for
Order Number 2108
Received (mm/dd/yy hh:mm): 01/24/08, 16:03
green river guidebook: $19.95
your name: MADISON A LAWMON
company name: N/A
address: 8889 S. 2750 W.
city: WEST JORDAN
The email you
receive looks just like this, accept the Subject is: "New Order",
and the next line instead reads "You have a received a New
Order". The credit card number doesn't appear on the email
as it is not secure; it is stored on the server.
You can retrieve
the order from a passworded, secure page via your browser, and manually
process the order through your credit card terminal. If you need
a merchant credit card account, a terminal or real-time processing,
