(This posting comes as a result of a recent question and having done some research, I need to ask a new question)
I find that in Moodle 2, I need to have a secure ssl cert on my hosted domain. This is needed especially when logging in as a guest and entering a key. This seems to be very different to that system in Mooodle 1.9, where https is not needed as guests are "enrolled" in an easier way. Can this setting be restored as default in Moodle 2?
Anyway, having contacted my hosting company, they suggest asking if Moodle 2 allows one to specify a https or secure address to use, (in this format): https://secure1.reg365.net/website.com
If this is not possible, then I can purchase an SSL cert from them and would then have a Dedicated IP address. Just wonder about option 1 first before I buy a cert?
Any advice welcome.
