    Hi;)

    I need advice....

    I went to a library on the net, and decided to buy a book. When I went through the payment procedure, Opera notified me that the server was not secure ("No Security"), despite the fact that the site said it would be.

    The adress was something like http://ssl.someadress1.com

    I guess the guys think their payment procedure is secure because of the ssl mention in the adress (?!).

    My question is:
    https://someadress2.com is secure (as I verified at another site with the same browser ("Security:TLS 128 bit"), while http://ssl.someadress1.com is absolutely not secure... Am I right, or am I missing something?

    In other word, "https://" means secure, while "http://ssl." does not mean anything, am I right about that?

    Thanks
