Prestashop offers the possibility to include media servers for static content in our store. What does it mean?
If you need some help to configure this feature in your server and your Prestashop store, please contact us here.
An example case could be:
- http://dominio.com --> Your Prestashop store
- http://static1.dominio.com --> Images will be downloaded from here
- http://static2.dominio.com --> JS files will be downloaded from here
- http://static3.dominio.com --> CSS style sheets will be downloaded from here
Prestashop offers the possiblity to use SSL certificates.
¡Of course! But there are many types of SSL cetificates, the cheapest ones are valid only for directions like:
http://www.dominio.com or http://dominio.com
But, What happens if we activate the static zones?
Your SSL certificate will not be valid for the static zones and you'll not be able to access them usinf https://
- My account zone
- Order steps
You have improved the security and the performance in your store, but you can't use both improvements together. You purchased your certificate, but static content will not load using https and browsers will advice your customers of this, redunding in a bad experience for them.
This is not the image you want to offer to your customers.
Solution?Purchase a miulti-subdomain valid SSL certificate (from 250 Euros in most specialized providers)Use our module. It will make https zones not to use static content (like it's supposed to be) fixing erros and browsers alerts. You'll be able to use SSL in the secure zones, and your static content (like images) will be shown without problems.
This module is compatible with multi-store Prestashop module. You can install the module in all your stores in a multi-store and use different configurations for each of them or configure once for all stores. But remember that if you want to use different installations of PrestaShop (independent shops), you have the obligation of buy the modulde license for each shop.
