The Importance of SSL Certificates for Alternative Auction Sites
Needs some convincing that an SSL certificate is necessary for an auction site? This post by sunray on PheeBay.com should give you some perspective.
With new sites appearing frequently I thought I would highlight the SSL issue. This recently caused a site owner to get upset here on Pheebay because I pointed the absence of a SSL certificate out to him. So rather than point this issue out on a case by case basis now I am posting this thread and will build upon it.
I make no apology whatsoever for pointing out a potential weakness in any site's security, particularly when users personal data is going to be transferred over the Internet.
