WHAT IS AN SSL CERTIFICATE
SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer, a protocol for encrypting Internet traffic and verifying server identity. Fundamentally, it’s a bit of code on your web server that provides security for online communications.
Simply put, SSL Certificates are what changes your website from HTTP to HTTPS – this single letter at the end stands for “Secure”, and that’s what makes all the difference. It means your connection to that website is secure and encrypted and so is any data you enter.
DOES MY WEBSITE NEED AN SSL CERTIFICATE
The short answer is – yes.
An SSL certificate is necessary for an HTTPS web address. Although many visitors may not notice the difference between an http:// and an https:// or the padlock on the web address, most browsers (such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox) are now tagging HTTP sites as ‘not secure’, so from a user’s perspective, HTTPS make your site more trustworthy.
SSL certificates keep communications private as they travel across the public Internet; they are required to keep user data secure and verify ownership of the website.
WHY BUY YOUR SSL CERTIFICATE FROM CL8
Simply because when it comes to security, we don’t play around. CL8 only offers SSL Certificates from the most trusted brand for Online Web Security – RapidSSL, GeoTrust, and Symantec.
When buying your SSL Digital Certificated from us, you deliver the strongest & fastest SSL, 99.9% Browser Compatibility and Market Leading Security, as an added perk we offer free SSL Reissues, for your absolute convenience.
Although all SSL certificates use similar methods to protect and validate your data, the level of trust and assertion they provide varies. Standard SSL (Domain Validated) Certificates are the easiest and most common type of SSL certificate. OV and EV Certificates also authenticate the identity of the company or organization that holds the certificate providing more trust to end users.
EV Certificates offer the highest level of validation and trust and will show the name of the company or organization in green in the address bar. This is an immediate, visual way that viewers can know that extra steps were taken to confirm the site they’re visiting – which is why most large companies and organizations choose EV certificates.
