I really love this site & recently made a purchase online to create an e-commerce site. There was a lot of hype generated. After spending an incredible amount of time & money I am somewhat disillusioned. Please explain how you can host free? What about an SSL for e-commerce sites.

Hi Kimberly

Thanks for your great feedback. SynthaSite does offer free site building and hosting. We make money from other premium services, such as domain sales. Site building and hosting will always remain free. We will never start charging you subscription fees or put any ads on your site.

Right now we are not in a position to offer you SSL certificates. This requires you to have a unique IP address and all our hosted sites use the same IP address. If you use an online store option such as PayPal or Google Checkout, your transactions are secure as they take place under the https of the service you are using. SynthaSite has an online store widget powered by PayPal, but you can integrate any shopping cart solution that allows you to paste embed code in our HTML editor.

We will be working on enhancing e-commerce features and hopefully in future we will have better solutions for you.

If you have any further questions, please let us know.
