What is SSL and It's Certificate

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for setting up an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures the privacy of all data passed between the web server and browsers. An SSL certificate enables a web server to create an SSL connection. SSL certificates are expected by consumers for any site that handles sensitive information like identity information, credit card numbers, or confidential records.

Why do i need an SSL Certificate

If your website requires users to log in, enter personal information such as credit card numbers or view confidential information such as financial statements, you need to keep the data private and assure your Customers that their data is completely safe.

Use of an SSL digital certificate assures website users of 3 things:

1. That the website really is who it claims to be.
2. That credit card numbers and other confidential information is encrypted (128bit or higher) and cannot be intercepted.
3. That the data sent and received cannot be tampered with or forged.

So, How does my customer/ user know that the website is safe

There are 3 primary components that allow users to identify if your website is safe. Visually, they look as follows.

Do SSL Certificates work in all browsers.

SSL Certificates are compatible with all major web browsers.

Can I upgrade my SSL Certificate

There is no provision of upgrading an SSL Certificate. However, if you require a more secure certificate for your website, you can purchase it and install it on the same web server as the old certificate.

Do I need technical expertise to set up a SSL Certificate on my website

While it is not difficult to install an SSL Certificate it does involve following a series of simple steps. Detailed information about installing our SSL Certificates can be found in our Knowledge base.

What is Shared Web Hosting

In Shared Web Hosting, multiple clients are hosted on a single server i.e. the clients share the server’s resources. This helps reduce the cost, since the cost of the server and its resources are spread over all the clients/packages hosted on the server. Shared Hosting is perfect for personal websites, small and mid-sized businesses that do not require all the resources of a server.
