|1. Where are your servers physically located?
They are located in USA, either in Dallas or Seattle.
|2. What is the purpose of a dedicated IP?|| |
Due to some particular qualities of HTTPS protocol, you need a dedicated IP address in order to setup a dedicated SSL certificate. Therefore, if you're planning to use a shared SSL provided by X-Cart hosting, usually you don't have to use a dedicated IP. However, if you intend to have your own dedicated SSL, a dedicated IP is needed in this case.
|3. What is the difference between a shared and a dedicated SSL certificate?|| |
The main difference is that a shared SSL is a single certificate used by all hosting clients free of charge. It means that when people check the verification details, the certificate shows the hosting company information (and not your own).
Therefore, store owners usually prefer using a dedicated certificate due to the more professional store look (since the certificate is dedicated to your company/web site).
Also, with a shared SSL certificate, your secure links will point to an URL like https://yourstore.x-shops.com. With a dedicated SSL, only the HTTPS prefix will be added before your domain name (e.g. https://www.yourstore.com) thus providing a cleaner URL format.
|4. How long does it take to install/transfer the store?|| |
Store installation/transfer is performed within one business day. After the procedure is completed, the store is accessible via a test URL. The convenient time of a final transfer is settled between you and us before proceeding.
