SSL Certificates

Why SSL Certificates are Essential to your Business

The primary reason why SSL is used is to keep sensitive information sent across the Internet encrypted so that only the intended recipient can understand it.

This is important because the information you send on the Internet is passed from computer to computer to get to the destination server. We can help you protect your site and ensure it stays protected, giving you more time to focus on your business.

Security and Trust

Prevent Data Attacks

Your customers' data will not be at risk to "man-in-the-middle" style attacks when it is transmitted to or from your website.

This is a very involved, and highly-technical process with the end result being encrypted communication between your website and the web browser of anyone visiting your site. Initially, what is termed a "handshake" takes place between the hosting server and visiting web browser, this initiates the secure connection. A "session key" is then employed to encrypt all data transmitted between server and browser. This prevents any data passed between both sides from being decipherable by any third party. Intercepting data in this manner is often known as a "man-in-the-middle attack."
Yes. If you have a website, SSL is needed. Earlier, it was okay to have an SSL only for the website which was collecting information from the user. But after Google’s update regarding SSL, it is needed no matter what type of website you have, whether you collect the information or not. Even a simple blog will also display a “Not Secure” if the SSL is not installed on it.
