Secure Your Business With Highly trusted SSL Certificates

What is an SSL certificate?

SSL certificates are used to create an encrypted connection and establish trust.

(Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing encrypted links between a web server and a browser, This way it ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral. Today SSL Certificate is considered an industry standard as it now used by millions of websites worldwide to secure the transmission of all communication and data through the websites.

Millions of websites use SSL encryption every day to secure connections and keep their customer’s data safe from monitoring and tampering.

Why Use SSL?

Every website on the Internet should be served over HTTPS. Here’s why:

  ♦  Performance: Modern SSL can actually improve page load times.

  ♦  Search Ranking Boost: Search engines favor HTTPS websites.

  ♦  Security: Encrypting traffic with SSL ensures nobody can snoop on your users’ data.

  ♦  Trust: By displaying a green lock in the browser’s address bar, SSL increases visitor’s trust.

  ♦  Regulatory Compliance: SSL is a key component in PCI compliance.

Types of SSL Certificates:

SSL Certificates are typically deployed to add security to pages where end-users are expected to submit highly confidential data. Examples include payment forms (which require the user to submit credit cards details), account login pages (where the user must enter their username and password) and secure services like internet banking and online email (where complete privacy is required). However, SSL certificates are certainly not restricted to sensitive pages and can be used to add security throughout a website. Indeed, Google is encouraging website owners to deploy SSL on all pages by giving better search ranking to HTTPS pages.

When a webpage uses an SSL certificate to secure a connection, the beginning of the URL will change from HTTP to HTTPS, with the ‘S’ standing for ‘secure’. Users will also see a padlock and, in the case of extended validation certificates, the entire address bar will turn green.

SSL certificates are issued to websites by a trusted third party known as a ‘Certificate Authority’ (CA) and are available in a variety of types and validation levels:
