I would like to set up a Django application to be fully secure. That is to say only available with SSL. If the user types in http://example.com they should be redirected to https://example.com . I don't want the user to get a warning that the certificate is not for my domain so I assume that means I need to provide my own certificate? How do I set that up? What Django settings and Webfaction control panal settings need to be set for this to work?

You create a "Static/PHP/CGI" application that only holds a redirect to https://domain.com and mount it to http://domain.com. The django app would be mounted to https://domain.com with another website record.


As for the certificate you must send us a support ticket. Your account will need a Dedicated IP address for each custom certificate you want us to install, they are 5$ a month and we can enable it anytime.

Does this 5$ certificate work with subdomains, or are those separate certificates?

John wasn't referring to a $5 certificate - we do not sell certificates.

He was referring to a $5 dedicated IP address - however, since Nov 2010 when he posted that answer, dedicated IPs are no longer a strict requirement for SSL (unless you need to support visitors using legacy operating systems and browsers).
