An SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificate is a technology that can be integrated into your website to protect and secure confidential data. The key purpose of using an SSL certificate is to ensure visitors trust your website.
You need an SSL certificate if you conduct online transactions, if you send or receive information of a personal nature or if you just wish to inspire trust in those who communicate with you via your website.
By taking an SSL certificate visitors to your website will see:
- "https://" at the begining of the URL address
- A closed padlock in their browser to indicate that the connection to the website is secure
We can provide SSL cerificates for use with all of our web hosting packages, for more information please contact our Sales Team on 01706 902100.
