What is SSL?
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is an encryption technology that creates an encrypted connection between the web server and your visitor’s web browser so that confidential information can be transferred.
What is an SSL Certificate?
A SSL certificate is a form of validation that is installed on the webserver. We can install a Domain Validation SSL certificates on your site.
Your secure site is accessed via https:// rather than http://, and indicated by a padlock icon in web browsers. Extended validation (EV) certificates also show a green address bar. A site’s SSL certificate can be viewed by clicking on the padlock icon in the address bar. Pay particular attention to the information under Details, which provides the validated company information.
Digital certificates are issued directly by a trusted certificate issuing authority (eg. Thawte, Verisign, Let’s Encrypt).
