RapidSSL Certificate

Installed by Hosting Nation! Avoid the hassle of installing & setup by letting us do it for you.

An SSL certification is typically used to secure a credit card payment page and is required by all merchant account providers. Most people know it by the small lock icon in the bottom of a browser window when browsing a secure page.

What is SSL?
The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol has become the standard on the Web for authenticating sites and for encrypting communications between users and Web servers. Because SSL is built into all major browsers and Web servers, installing an SSL certificate on your website server enables SSL capabilities for your website visitors.

SSL server authentication allows users to confirm a Web server's identity. SSL-enabled client software, such as a Web browser, can automatically check that a server's certificate and public ID are valid and have been issued by a certificate authority. SSL server authentication is vital for secure e-commerce transactions.

An encrypted SSL connection requires all information sent between a client and a server to be encrypted by the sending software and decrypted by the receiving software, protecting private information from interception over the Internet. In addition, all data sent over an encrypted SSL connection is protected with a mechanism for detecting tampering that is, for automatically determining whether the data has been altered in transit. This means that users can confidently send private data, such as credit card numbers, to a website, trusting that SSL keeps it private and confidential."

If you don't already have a hosting account with us you may wish to add one to your shopping cart so we can install the certificate for you.
