SSL Security Certificates

Keep your website information protected with an SSL security certificate. Providing essential peace of mind for both website owners and visitors, SSL certificates signify world-class data protection and increase browsing confidence for your visitors.

As a website owner, you can be safe in the knowledge that the SSL secure connection will benefit both you and your visitors by ensuring important information is kept concealed. Having an SSL certificate will keep your visitors coming back safe in the knowledge you have a trustworthy online presence.

What is SSL?

SSL stands for ‘Secure Sockets Layer’ and is the world-standard security technology for creating an encrypted link between a server and a browser. Websites with SSL certificates ensure trust and respect from visitors, as SSL technology guarantees stringent security checks are in place to protect private information.

How an SSL certificate can help you…

Improve your ecommerce website

A highly encrypted SSL certificate will help you to take online payments securely without a third-party merchant, reducing your costs and increasing payment options for customers.

Consumers often abandon online checkouts if the site doesn’t appear secure. Having an SSL certificate gives your website visible, world-standard security credentials.

Safeguard visitor data

If you ask visitors for personal details, protect them with an SSL certificate; the data is scrambled to prevent any other parties getting access. Placing the GeoTrust® True Site Seal on your page provides peace of mind for visitors whilst encouraging them to submit data safely.

Store confidential information securely

Even if you are storing data rather than requesting it, an SSL certificate prevents data being intercepted when it is being accessed by authorised users.

If your site requires a log in for protected information, make it secure with SSL technology.
