Can I host my store on my unsecure domain and host the checkout process on my secure domain?

I have one domain that I use to host an SSL certificate on and for my other sites, the secure checkout process happens on that domain when they are redirected there from the main site. The main site does not have an SSL certificate installed because it is on a shared IP with some of my other domains. I purchased an SSL certificate for my “secure” domain to save money and so far it has worked really well.

But will Magento allow me to split it up like this? Can I have my Magento store on my regular http domain and then host the checkout process on my httpS domain?

Thank you.

Dr. Greg -
It’s not a problem to run the regular Magento storefront on http:// and the checkout pages on https:// secure pages.

However, you’re going to run into a cookie issue (most likely) if you try to change the domain name between the regular site and the checkout site. 

It can be done, but it sometimes will be a flag / warning to customers not to place an order with your store…

Just my $0.02.

Thanks,
-- Jeff
