What is an SSL certificate?
SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. It provides top degree security to your site and is particularly necessary for eCommerce businesses. You will know if a website has an SSL certificate if the URL header reads HTTPS, rather than the traditional HTTP.
The ‘S’ displays to all visitors that any sensitive data, like credit card details or login information transferred through the website will remain safe by encrypting it. Once it’s encrypted, it can only be read by the authorised server.
Does your business have subdomains? A Wildcard SSL Certificate covers not only your primary domain but multiple subdomains with the top-level security encryption. Rather than buying separate certificates for each of your subdomains, you can cover the lot with a single solution. Enquire with our Online Solutions providers for a quote on the price of a Wildcard SSL Certificate for your business today.
Can you put a price on privacy? This is one service you don’t want to scrimp on. The cost of an SSL certificate can change from provider to provider, depending on the features you wish to include. We suggest that you make decisions about security with a focus on features, accreditation and compatibility with your business needs, rather than the price. The cheapest option may be right for some but not all businesses, so tread carefully when making your choice.
Although you may have a cPanel hosting plan which includes a shared SSL certificate, this certificate will always show your web host as the owner. A dedicated GeoTrust QuickSSL Premium certificate will show your company as the owner (via the click to verify link) of the security on your site, which increases your brand’s presence and improves your customers' trust in your website.
