11. What is ecBuilder?

ecBuilder is an ecommerce website building application for Windows 9x/NT 4. ecBuilder allows you to easily create a fully functional webstore. Video, images, banners and shopping carts are some of the available features.

 

ecBuilder has built in SSL support and therefore does not require the user to purchase an SSL certificate. Support for E-xact and InternetSecure is also included.

 

Presently, three versions of ecBuilder are available. The SOHO edition is available free, while the standard and pro versions must be purchased. More information about ecBuilder can be found at: www.ecbuilder.com


 

12. Where do I get support for ecBuilder?

Technical support for ecBuilder is the responsibility of the manufacturer. Some support for ecBuilder is available in the ACS Domain Management Control Panel online help under the "Using ecBuilder to build your website" heading. Support questions should be referred to ecBuilder's technical support department at: ecbuilder support.


 

13. How is ecommerce supported?

We support ecommerce by supplying the platform architecture to enable ecommerce websites. We provide EasyStoreMaker, a website ecommerce utility.


 

14. I have my own shopping cart but need an SSL. Do you have a Secure Server (SSL) in place that I can use?

Yes, our SSL is available on the Silver and higher hosting packages.


 

15. Do I need my own certificate for SSL?

No, you can use our generic certificate.


 

16. How do I setup my SSL site?

All you need to do is access the SSL Manager within the ACS Domain Management Control Panel.


 

17. How do I access my site with your generic certificate?

Your site will be accessible using the following URL:
Site - http's://www.secure2.securewebexchange.com/theirdomain.com/


 

18. Do I get a secure cg i-bin as well?

Your cg i-bin will be accessible using the following URL:
CGI - http's://www.secure2.securewebexchange.com/theirdomain.com/cg i-bin/


 

19. Where do I place my content for the SSL with your general certificate?

You'll need to place your content inside the directory called "secure" in your home directory. This directory is a symbolic link to the secure domain. Any CGI programs should be placed inside the "secure-cg-bin" directory.


 

20. How can I purchase my own certificate?

If you want your own certificate, we can assist you in obtaining it. Contact us or use the SSL Manager to generate a private key and an electronic certificate request (CSR) with our SSL software (OpenSSL). You will need to supply us with your desired name for the secure site (www.domain.com, domain.com, etc.), the company name, operational division (if desired) and address (including city, province/state and country code). The CSR (which we will send to you via email) will have to be sent to a Certificate Authority, along with "Proof of Organizational Name" and "Proof of right to use Domain Name". The "Proof of Organizational Name" in most cases is a copy of your customer's company registration documents or certificate of incorporation. The "Proof of the right to use Domain Name" in most cases is a printout your whois information. There are exceptions to both proofs.

 

Contact your Certificate Authority for their exact specifications before sending any documents. If you are using Thawte, this information can be found at: http://www.thawte.com. While we recommend Thawte Consulting for SS certificates, you are free to choose any Certificate Authority.


 

21. How do I download the certificate?

After the Certificate Authority generates the certificate, you will be notified to download the certificate. After the certificate is downloaded, it has to be emailed to us at support@24hourwebhostingsupport.com.


 

22. Where do I place my content for the SSL with my own certificate?

Once we receive the certificate, your secure site will be setup. Secure content will be placed in the "secure" directory located in your site's home directory. CGI scripts are to be placed in the "secure-cg-bin" directory.
