I have purchased SSL certificate (123-reg SSL) but have no idea how to install it. They sent me just a bunch of signs and said it was my certificate. It thought I would get just html code, but got something I completely do not understand.
I sent an enquiry to yola support, but nobody answered. Can anybody help me?

Hi Jack,

Unfortunately websites hosted by Yola cannot be secured using SSL certificates as we are virtual hosting. Therefore we do not assign a unique IP address to each website.

If you wish to secure your websites with SSL certificates you will need to move to an ISP who can provide you with a unique ip address for each of your websites. The other option is to use a third party payment gateway (like PayPal or Google Checkout) as you will use their security to transact online.

I would suggest contacting 123-Reg for further assistance on this.

I am sorry I could not be of more assistance on this.

What shall I use PayPal for? I am not interested in making transactions secure, it is not my part of the business, becouse it is not me who sells directly, I am only an affiliate.

All I wanted was that SSL seal, becouse it makes website looking more professional and some people trust you more when they see that.

It is a pity nobody warns about it before. Now I am left with something I paid for and cannot use it...

Hi Jack - perhaps the Truste Privacy Policy would suit you? You can find more information on this link:

I percussed a Truste seal, but I am not using it because its an unprofessionally written a policy, thant is linked to some other domain name, it isn't coming from Truste's domain even link is not carrying https

That is only one reason, I want to live and goodaddy shows Yola site's not safe because yola use PHP 5.2.11 and they have to update it.
