What is SSL?

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a protocol for enabling data encryption on the Internet and for helping web site users confirm the owner of the web site. SSL is most commonly used to protect communications between web browsers and servers. However, it is increasingly used for server to server communications and for web-based applications.

Encryption

Encryption is a mathematical process of coding and decoding information. The number of bits (40-bit, 56-bit, 128-bit, 256-bit) tells you the size of the key. Like a longer password, a larger key has more possible combinations. When an encrypted session is established, the encryption level is determined by the capability of the web browser, SSL certificate, web server, and client computer operating system.

Browser Recogition

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a security protocol that requires a web server and browser to work together to establish an encrypted channel for the exchange of information. Seamless trust between a browser and server depends on the browser’s ability to trust the SSL provider.

Browsers determine whether or not to trust an SSL certificate by checking the source of the certificate issuance. If the SSL certificate is issued by a Certificate Authority that is known and trusted by the browser, the browser extends that trust to the web site secured by the SSL certificate. If the certificate is self-signed or issued by an unknown Certificate Authority, the browser may display an alert or security warning.

Setup Fee

SSL certificates used on our servers require setup and installation, which we do for you to save you the trouble. If you purchase an SSL certificate to use on your own server that you will install yourself, let us know and we’ll remove the setup fee. BYO SSL certificates can be installed by yourself with no setup fee, or installed by us (setup fee applies).
