How SSL Certificates Work

Internet safety is a number 1 priority for everybody who buys services online, and your clients will demand nothing but the highest possible level of safety when they buy your services.

What Does SSL Denote?

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a protocol that secures your online shop or login page. The Secure Sockets Layer certificates, also known as digital certificates, encrypt the sensitive information requested from site visitors such as place of residence, date of birth, national identification number, driver's licence or credit card details, so that nobody could use these details for illicit purposes.

Your site visitors can identify a secure site by the ‘https' component at the beginning of the Internet address, or by the lock symbol in the browser window, or by a special seal on the web site.

The SSL certificates offer two hundred and fifty six-bit encryption, and include a $10 000 USD warranty and a static site seal for your website. You need to get a dedicated IP address.
