A network technician is setting up a web server for a small company. The company has obtained a domain name companyX.com from a domain registry service. The web server must provide secure communication through SSL/TLS technology. When the technician enters companyX.com in the web browser, the unsecured part of the website is displayed. What should the technician do to make the web browser display the secure content of the web server?
- Use https://companyX.com as the URL.
- Use http://companyX.com as the URL.
- Use http://companyX.com::443 as the URL.
- Ensure that the domain name is successfully resolved.
A web URL is in the form protocol://domain-name/resource. HTTP is the default protocol used by all web browsers so that if a user does not specify the protocol in the URL, HTTP is used by default. In order to access the secure content serviced through SSL/TLS, a user must specify HTTPS as the protocol in the URL.
