SSL Certificates

Secure your website transactions and promote visitor trust

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.

Frequent Questions

Here's some common questions we're asked. If you need more information, get in touch.

  What are the billing cycle options for an SSL Certificate?

You can purchase an SSL certificate for 1, 2 or 3 years.

  Can I add a site seal to my website to let visitors know my site is encrypted?

Yes, once your order is complete, we'll send out the site seal details to you. It's just a small piece of code that gets added to your site, normally in a sidebar or footer area.

  Will SSL protect my site from being hacked?

SSL is intended to encrypt data between a web browser and a server, or between two servers. This encryption prevents a malicious party from stealing information as it passes through the internet. It does not encrypt data hosted on the server or protect against hacking or malware.

Yes, you can install your own SSL certificate or if you would like us to install it for you, we charge a $49 installation fee.
