More About SSL Security Certificate

As it is essential for internet security, our website is SSL-certified. SSL means Secure Sockets Layer and what it does is to create a foundation of trust by establishing a secure connection.

SSL allows sensitive information such as credit card numbers and login credentials to be transmitted securely. Without SSL certification, data sent between browsers and web servers is sent in plain text, leaving the user vulnerable to eavesdropping. If an attacker is able to intercept all data being sent between a browser and a web server, they can see and use that information.

Therefore, to assure visitors their connection is secure, browsers provide special visual cues, which is anything from a green padlock to the branded URL bar. All browsers can interact with secured web servers. However, the browser and the server need what is called an SSL Certificate to establish a secure connection.

SSL secures millions of peoples’ data on the Internet every day, especially during online transactions or when transmitting confidential information. SSL-secured websites usually begin with https rather than http. The browser lets the user know that the website is secure by showing the padlock sign, and the user can feel safe browsing the site and even entering their confidential information.
