Hosting iPage domain name from own server?

Click Here To View All Answers...


First of all Hosting iPage domain name from own server? Looking forward for any answer. My other question... One of my clients wants to display a banner on her iPage site that links to the items she's selling on ebay. Ebay provided her with a snip of code and everything works properly on unsecure pages..

The problem occurs when a user goes to a secure page. An error is displayed informing the visitor the page contains both secure and unsecure items. If the vistior chooses to display both the page is not secure..

I'm looking for a way to either display banners only on unsecure pages or edit the following snip of code to correct this issue..

<a href="http://cgi6.ebay.com/ws/ebayISAPI.dll?ViewListedItemsLinkButtons&userid=userid"><img src="http://pics.ebay.com/aw/pics/ebay_my_button.gif" alt="My items on eBay"></a>.

Any help will be appreciated..

TIA,.

Greggory..

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I got an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you help..

I have considered that option, but ebay requests users not do that in the event they decide to update their button...

Well, the button "http://pics.ebay.com/aw/pics/ebay_my_button.gif" is comming from an insecure server so you will get the message on your secure pages. How about not using the button and just make it a text link like..

<a href="http://cgi6.ebay.com/ws/ebayISAPI.dll?ViewListedItemsLinkButtons&userid=userid">My items on eBay</a>..

Oops, hit the button twice.

I guess what you want to do is say that if it is not a secure server show the button and if it is don't..

Maybe you could save the ebay_my_button.gif down to your server then change the code to:.

<a href="http://cgi6.ebay.com/ws/ebayISAPI.dll?ViewListedItemsLinkButtons&userid=userid"><img src="https://mydomain.com/images/ebay_my_button.gif" alt="My items on eBay"></a>..
