SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral. SSL is an industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their online transactions with their customers. If you do business online, you need SSL protection!SSL Certificate provides data encryption (scrambling of data to prevent tampering during transmissions) and validation (verification of the business behind the website). When a website visitor enters SSL-protected areas of your website, your SSL certificate automatically creates an encrypted connection with the visitor's browser. Once the connection is complete, a padlock icon and HTTPS prefix will appear in the visitor's browser bar to show them that it is safe to share their personal details.
