Fotor1202160337SSL Certificates, (secure socket layer) security is a must have for any online ecommerce website or any site which that wishes to accept payments. SSL certificates are a massive benefit to your website and your visiting customers. Gaining their confidence is very important and if you wish to be successful online.

What is SSL / Secure Certificate?

SSL and Secure Certificates provide security for your website by encrypting communications between the server and the person visiting the website. A SSL certificate is an online security encryption method used to keep data transferred on your site by your customers secure. In order to use SSL, you need to have an SSL Certificate (also known as a Secure Certificate) installed on your server, a dedicated IP address, and visitors to your website need to use a modern web browser, such as recent versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari or Google Chrome

What is it used for?

There are two main reasons why you would need an SSL Certificate.  The first and most common reason is because you want to accept credit card payments on your website.  The second reason is that you may have confidential information that you want to keep secure while it is being accessed via the web.  SSL Certificates also help to protect your passwords from being intercepted, when typed into a secure login page.

Do I need one?

If you are accepting credit card payments online via a merchant account, the credit card associations and networks require that you use SSL whenever you transmit credit card information, such as the card number, cardholder’s name, expiration date, CVV code, etc. (such as when a customer enters their credit card on your shopping cart order form or payment page).  This is an important part of making your website PCI compliant (a set of rules that must be followed in order to accept credit card payments).

How do I obtain SSL Certificate?

You may obtain the SSL Certificate from SIIKE HOST, and we will install it for you for free.

Purchasing an SSL Certificate from SIIKE HOST not only expedites the process, but also requires fewer steps. (Shared Hosting SSL installations and domain verification has been automated to save you even more time.) Purchasing an SSL Certificate elsewhere requires more time because it involves some additional steps.

Hi there! This article couldn’t be written any better!
Looking at this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
He constantly kept talking about this. I am going to send this information to him.
Fairly certain he’s going to have a very good read. I appreciate you for sharing!
