An SSL Certificate (Secure Sockets Layer), also called a Digital Certificate, creates a secure link between a website and a visitor’s browser. By ensuring that all data passed between the two remains private and secure, SSL encryption prevents hackers from stealing private information such as credit card numbers, names and addresses.
If you sell products or services on your website and accept credit cards online, you need an SSL Certificate for website security. If you don’t sell online but want to add credibility to your website, a Site Confirm Seal may be sufficient.
How Can an SSL Certificate Help My Online Business?
As part of the process of issuing an SSL Certificate, a Certificate Authority (CA), such as Network Solutions, authenticates the purchasing company’s identity. The CA verifies the purchaser’s credentials using WHOIS database information, Dun & Bradstreet data, articles of incorporation, government-issued photo ID’s and/or other credible sources.
This comprehensive approach to identity validation ensures that an SSL Certificate is a reliable symbol of your company’s trust worthiness. In turn, your SSL certificate shows customers that your business is legitimate and that it’s safe to conduct business with you online.
