    I have an SSL successfully installed on a domain, how do I begin to use this?
    When accessing the main domain, no errors using https:

    but when beginning browse I recieve the following:

    This page contains both secure and insecure items
    Would you like to display the non secure items?

    How do I resovle this?

    You probably have images located on a 3rd party source or images in general and they are not being encrypted.

    Could I have an example of a third party script?

    - A third party script could be a shopping cart or similar program that allows for purchases made on your website.

    - All images displayed must be on a secure server; meaning, one with an SSL certificate like the one you mentioned. If any images are not on your server, the src must be in the form of https://.

    - If the images are on your server, the src should be something like /images/image.png, which will always make sure they are loaded in the correct format.

    -If you have integrated your site with a script like billing software or a forum, either make sure you have all your images in that folder as well as your public_html folder, or, if you are using the url to their location instead of them being in the same folder as the third party script, make sure it is in the https:// format.

    -Also, most SSL's are specific to either domain.com or www.domain.com, not both. Remember to have the url's to your images use the correct format.
