What Does SSL Mean?
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a protocol that secures your online shop or sign-on page. The Secure Sockets Layer certificates, also known as digital certificates, encrypt the sensitive information requested from website visitors such as place of residence, birth date, Social Security number, driver's license or debit card info, so that nobody could use this info for illicit purposes.
Your site guests can recognize a protected website by the ‘https' part at the beginning of the Internet address, or by the padlock symbol in the web browser window, or by a special seal on the site.
The certificates offer two hundred and fifty six-bit encryption, and include a $10 000 US dollar warranty and a static site seal for your web site. You are required to get a static IP address.
