An SSL certificate is a technology which encrypts certain areas of your site, making safe for visitors to enter sensitive data such and credit card information, address, phone number, and other pieces of information about themselves. SSL (stands for “secure sockets layering”) is security encryption that protects your visitors when they’re typing in sensitive information on your web site, such as a credit card. Simply put, the address changes from http:// to https:// at the point when it’s needed. This is how you as well as your clients can tell that this portion of your site has security to protect them.
SSL Certificates can be inexpensive or can cost a great deal of money. Your SSL certificate can ensure trust with new visitors, and using a well known company like Verisign has shown in studies to increase sales up to ten percent!.
Here are some companies that provide SSL Certificates:
Also, many hosting companies offer very inexpensive SSL certificates along with their hosting packages, so if you’re new and can’t afford the 360.00 or so per year that Verisign charges, you can many times get one for $20 per year just so you have security.
Another way to assure customers is to pay for something called a Trust Seal. A Trust Seal is an added method of verification that assures customers that you are not some “fly by night” internet company. Companies like Geotrust.com and Verisign offer trust seals that provide an added way for people to know that you’re a real business.
