SSL Certificates

Secure your website
  • Protect sensitive information – so nobody else can read it.
  • Keep your website and visitors secure.
  • Prove your identity to your potential customers.
Keep your visitors secure and protect your data

You might have a shiny, impressive website, but if visitors don’t feel secure using it, all your efforts will count for nothing. The question of trust always looms large online, especially when it comes to asking visitors to submit their sensitive information. Nobody provides credit card details unless they feel completely safe. That’s why you need to prove your site is 100% secure – and SSL Certificates do just that.

How it works?

SSL encrypts information sent between your website and a visitor’s web browser so that it cannot be read as it is sent across the internet.

SSL stands for secure sockets layer (you never know, it might come up in a quiz sometime), and it’s most commonly used when websites request sensitive information from a visitor, like a password or credit card number.

If you’ve ever bought anything online, you’ve probably used SSL without realising it. Most web browsers display a padlock when you’re viewing a site over SSL, so you know the connection is secure.

The address of pages viewed over SSL also normally starts https://, instead of http://.

When you buy SSL, you’re actually buying an SSL certificate. This is issued by a trusted authority and identifies your site or business. You can then install this onto your domain name in order to encrypt pages on your website. If you have a website package with us, we’ll automatically install your SSL Certificate for you.
