Every Domain Needs SSL Security!

SSL stands for secure sockets layer and is a form of security for websites that receive private information from their customers, such as names, phone numbers, addresses, passwords and credit card numbers.
SSL creates a secure connection between a customer’s web browser and the server of the company they’re interacting with.
SSL is essential for any website that sells goods or services as it ensures that all information sent between the user and the website is private and secure.

Do I really need SSL?

If you have an e-commerce website or a website that accepts personal customer information through an online form, then you may want to consider an SSL Certificate for your domain.

This ensures that the information that your customers provide through your website, is not able to be intercepted or viewed by a third party.

Also, your Google ranking will be more favourable if Google detects that your domain has a SSL certificate installed.

How do website visitors know if my website has SSL installed?

When a browser connects to a secure site it retrieves the site's SSL certificate and checks that;

 

  1. it has not expired;
  2. that it has been issued by a Certificate Authority the browser trusts and;
  3. that it is being used by the web site for which it has been issued.

If it fails on any one of these checks the browser will display a warning to the end user. If it succeeds, several security indicators are built into modern browsers to indicate that SSL is enabled.

 

  1. The beginning of the URL or web address changes from http:// to https://
  2. A padlock on the browser window changes from open to closed
  3. The address bar will turn green and display the name of the web site owner when connecting to a web site protected by an Extended Validation SSL certificate.

In addition, a trust mark such as the RapidSSL, Thawte or Geo Trust site seal may be added to web pages on a secure site.
