What Does SSL Mean?

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a protocol that shields your e-store or login page. The SSL certificates, also referred to as digital certificates, encrypt the sensitive info requested from site visitors such as physical address, birth date, Social Security number, driving licence or credit card details, so that nobody could use this info for illegal purposes.

Your web site guests can recognize a secure site by the ‘https' component at the beginning of the URL, or by the padlock icon in the web browser window, or by a special seal on the website.

The Secure Sockets Layer certificates offer 256-bit encryption, and include a 10 000 dollar warranty and a site seal for your web site. You are required to have a dedicated IP.
