    Thanks for your reply & help.
    Karim, I will explain you.
    Dedicated SSL certificates can only be installed on dedicated IP, we do provide dedicated IP FREE with Dedicated SSL which can be used to install your certificate. This way you just have to pay for Dedicated SSL certificate and you will be getting FREE IP for it's installation.

    If your website has a ssl certification you can get HTTPS is a combination of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol with the SSL/TLS protocol to provide encrypted communication and secure identification of a network web server. HTTPS connections are often used for payment transactions on the World Wide Web for more details

    My domain is hosted with webhosting.uk.com, how do I get a SSL Cert?

    You can get SSL cert even from domain registrar if they provide so
    Webhosting UK do provide SSL (Comodo) for £3.99 / Month.
    Even you can buy SSL from other providers some of them are Geotrust, Verisign, Thawrte, Rapidssl and others, usually they won’t send the certificate before verification.

    Sorry Harry, you are of course right. I should have been clearer.

    Kev, You have to buy a SSL certificate to enable your https service.
    Some host provide it free ( shared SSL ) or you may have a private copy by buying dedicated SSL certificate.

    Yep, I got your point, even paypal & amazon and many other trusted sites follow that.

    Absolutely, although even then I'd probably aim to deliver a mixture of http and https pages.

    I agree with kev, you should have particular reason to use https, especially encryption is must if you have "ecommerce site" ( it has highest intrusion rates ) as you need to keep your session encrypted to send private information of your clients.

    You wold normally use http because you take a performance hit with https, however anything you send via http is unencrypted so there is a small chance that someone could use a packet sniffer to intercept your traffic. You don't need to have a certificate to use https but you probably wouldn't use it for an entire site unless you had some particular reason to do so.

    I don't think anyone would ever replace https to just http. Why should one ?
    You know you have to pay certain amount to get SSl certificate for https.

    I too don't see any issues with http or https other than the performance. However you must not replace https with http, as in https all the data is encrypted. it helps you to maintain the secure environment. It is most essential for finance, banking and defense sectors.
