|Secure Socket Layer|
|Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is the standard way of transferring data securely over the Internet. It encrypts data, so that sensitive information cannot be intercepted by a third party. It is most often used to allow e-commerce transactions to be placed securely, where data like credit card information needs to be protected. For SSL to work properly, your website is required to have a digital certificate, issued by an authorized SSL certificate provider. For small business, we recommend Thawte Certification. |
We also offer secure transaction capability without the need for your own SSL certificate via our purchase-secure.net order form service. See our add-ons page for details.
Note: You can use SSL without an SSL certificate; however, visitors will receive a warning message that there is not a "trusted" certificate for the website.
