Powerful encryption for your data.
You’re different. So, Let’s be different together.
We have the answers to make you understand.
If you are owning an online business that deals with sensitive client data, then it is strongly recommended that you purchase an SSL certificate, otherwise you might endanger your customers or even lose potential clients due to lack of trust.
SSL encrypts information sent between your website and a visitor’s web browser so that it cannot be read as it is sent across the internet. SSL stands for secure sockets layer and it’s most commonly used when websites request sensitive information from a visitor, like a password or credit card number.
It’s not uncommon for malicious users to try and “listen” to the communication between a client and your server with the intention to gather and steal data such as personal and credit card information. When this communication data is not encrypted, it is not safe and your clients are at risk at losing it.
An SSL Certificate is a digital certificate issued for a domain by a central authority called the Certificate Authority. To be issued an SSL Certificate, you must purchase an SSL Certificate and then go through a verification process conducted by the Certificate Authority.
An SSL Certificate does 2 things: a. Encrypt the information sent from your user’s browser to your website b. Authenticate your website’s identity. By doing these 2 things, an SSL Certificate protects your customers and in turn increases their trust in your online business. This is especially important if your website requires users to login using passwords or enter sensitive information such as credit card details.
While it isn’t difficult to install an SSL Certificate, it does involve following a series of steps. You can find more information in our KnowledgeBase.
SSL encrypts information sent between your website and a visitor’s web browser so that it cannot be read as it is sent across the internet. SSL stands for secure sockets layer and it’s most commonly used when websites request sensitive information from a visitor, like a password or credit card number. If you’ve ever bought anything online, you’ve probably used SSL without realising it. Most web browsers display a padlock when you’re viewing a site over SSL, so you know the connection is secure.
If your business is just starting out then you may consider a cheaper option like the RapidSSL by GeoTrust which covers just one domain name and its corresponding www. subdomain. If you are looking to encrypt more domains or to impress your clients with the green address bar you may consider a wildcard SSL or one of the extended validation (EV) SSL certificates.
