I just bought an SSL cert from GoDaddy and I want to install it on my web-server. But I don't want my whole website to be covered by the SSL. I only want the sign-up pages and the login and account pages.
I was told by a rep at my hosting company that an SSL is site-wide, and I will not be able to do this unless I buy a new site with a new domain. He said creating a sub-domain will not work, and case an error.
Is this true? How is it possible that I see many sites displaying normal http, and only change to https when you go to the login page, or the sign up page?
Your thoughts are appreciated. The site is running on a Windows IIS 7.5 server with ColdFusion and PHP and ASP.
