Definition of SSL Certificates

Internet security is priority No. 1 for everybody who buys goods online, and your customers will want nothing but the highest possible level of safety when they pay for your services.

What Does SSL Stand for?

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a protocol that defends your online storefront or logon page. The SSL certificates, also referred to as digital certificates, encrypt the delicate information required from site visitors such as address, date of birth, national identity number, driver's license or bank account info, so that no one could use this information for illegal purposes.

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

The digital certificates feature 256-bit encryption, and include a ten thousand US dollar warranty and a static site seal for your web site. You need to have a dedicated IP.
