SSL provides security for data sent to and from a web site.
To begin using SSL , you will first need to create a new subdirectory (or folder) in your site. Into this folder you can place any pages you want to protect with SSL.
Yahoo does not currently provide an SSL connection for individual domain names; instead we'll assign you space on one of our secure SSL servers. When someone visits an SSL-protected page in your site, he'll be redirected to this shared server at a web address that includes the server name assigned to you, plus your own domain, like this:
You may receive a security warning or a broken lock icon when viewing an SSL secured page if it's referencing any file from outside the " ssl " subdirectory in your File Manager.

You have activated SSL , and you are attempting to access content that was not delivered with SSL encryption.
PayPal protects its payment pages (including data from both you and your customers) with SSL technology . If you added your own logo to the PayPal payment page when you created your Buy Now Button, and your logo image is located in a directory not protected by SSL, your customer's browser will likely display a message warning that some elements in the PayPal payment page are insecure.
