Understanding SSL Certificate

When people buy stuff online, they need to part with sensitive information such as credit card details. The onus of ensuring that the information that customers provide on an e-commerce website remains safe and secure lies with the website. The website in turn relies on a secure web hosting service provider to ensure that all the data that is transmitted via their website to the server remains private, secure and safe.

How does this happen?

A secure web hosting service provider ensures safety protocols are in place by encrypting the data that is submitted on an e-commerce website. What this means is that when a visitor submits any information such as credit card numbers on an e-commerce website, the data remains private and cannot be tapped into or viewed by anyone other than the website owner. This is to prevent potential security breaches which can lead to identity theft and credit card fraud.

How does a customer know that a website is secure?

A customer can identify if a website is secure or not by checking for the visual of a padlock in the web browser next to where the URL is typed or the address bar. The address bar of a secure website will also be green and the URL of a secure website is shown as https:// instead of http:// where the s stands for SSL or Secure Sockets Layer. What this means is that when a visitor is on an https:// or a SSL website, the browsing session is encrypted and all data that is transmitted between the website and the server remains private and secure.

How does an e-commerce website obtain an SSL certificate?

There are many authorised vendors which offer SSL certificates and they can be obtained through a secure web hosting service provider. In fact, SSL certificates are not only relevant for e-commerce websites but also for any business website. If your website requires visitors to submit any kind of personal data such as their name and password to log-in or sign-up, then they are providing critical information to you and it is imperative that this information is protected from hackers because it could be potentially used as a means of identity theft. Depending on the server your website is hosted on, a secure web hosting provider can offer a shared SSL certificate which is common for the server or an SSL certificates exclusive to your domain name.

If your search for a reputable business web hosting provider has brought you here, you can be assured that Secure Web Hosting can support you with key features that can help your e-commerce website flourish.
