SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. It's a technology that helps secure an internet connection and protect any data that’s transferred between a browser and a web server. The little green lock lets visitors know that you’ll keep their data safe and that is very important.
By encrypting and securing any data that passes through this connection you help to prevent any data theft or hacking. Plus, if any data is stolen from this connection it’ll be impossible to decipher since it’s encrypted.
In the past, SSL was commonly used to protect and secure sensitive information, like banking details, credit card numbers, and sensitive personal information. However, today with stricter privacy standards, almost every website can benefit from installing an SSL certificate to protect any user information.
SSL operates between a visitor’s browser and your site or application. It’s an industry-standard mechanism that ensures the encryption of data being passed backward and forwards so that no unauthorized person can spy on the information and hack it.
It also prevents cybercriminals from diverting visitor traffic to their own site using their own encryption and gaining access to your data that way. All major web browsers have SSL capability built in.
The process of enabling an SSL certificate on your site is quite simple. We offer highly-competitive pricing on SSL certificate certificate packages at our hosting partner, IntegratedMedia.Tech. Savings in a single year can be as much as 25%.
