Secure Your Web Site with an SSL Certificate
Instant Activation. Free Installation & Configuration.
One of the most common questions our clients ask is “What is SSL?”. SSL is a common name that is loosely used for both the cryptographic protocols Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Secure Sockets Layer was the most popular protocol for communication security used on the web and thus the name is still used for the newer upgraded versions like TLS as well. You don’t need to fully understand what SSL is, in order to appreciate the benefits of owning an SSL certificate. 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. You can easily recognize whether a website is encrypted with SSL by looking at the address bar in your browser. If the web address starts with https:// then the website is encrypted, if it is just http://, then the site is not encrypted. For example our website is encrypted and your data is safe with us.

Many online users now understand the benefits of SSL certificates and prefer to browse the Web safely. 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. Now that you know what SSL is, you can proceed and choose a suitable SSL certificate for your needs. 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. What is SSL if not the best first step towards improved security on your website? If you have any questions regarding your SSL purchase, don’t hesitate to contact our support team right away!
