SSL Certificates - Sites need to look secure

If you want your visitors to know their data is safe, you’ve got to look secure. The “s” in https and the green lock in the browser address bar are two indicators that a website is protected by a trusted SSL certificate.

How it works

An SSL creates a secure tunnel through which information including
usernames, passwords, credit card numbers and more can pass safely.

  • FIRST, THE SSL “HANDSHAKE”

    When a visitor enters an SSL-protected website, your SSL certificate automatically creates a secure, encrypted connection with their browser. Your site is most secure when SSL is deployed on all pages and subdomains.

  • THE PADLOCK ICON APPEARS

    Once the connection is complete, a padlock icon and HTTPS prefix appear in the visitor’s browser bar to show them they’re safe to share personal details. If you install an EV (Extended Validation) SSL, the browser will activate the green bar and display your company name to prove you’re legit.

  • YOU’RE GOOD TO GO

    All information passing to and from your website is now scrambled by 2048-bit encryption that’s virtually unbreakable by hackers.
