Protect your visitors

Secure Socket Layer (SSL/TLS) is used to encrypt traffic between a website on a web server and a visitor from a browser. By encrypting the traffic it becomes impossible for unauthorized persons to intercept the traffic between your website and the visitor.

SSL is the standard in online security. It is used to encrypt data sent over the Internet between a client (your computer) and a server (a website's computer). This automatically prevents many types of attacks: if a hacker intercepts encrypted data, the hacker can't read it or use it without the private decryption key.

Robust Security Certificates

HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) is an internet communication protocol that protects the integrity and confidentiality of data between the user's computer and the site. Users expect a secure and private online experience when using a website. We encourage you to adopt HTTPS in order to protect your users' connections to your website, regardless of the content on the site.

You must obtain a security certificate as a part of enabling HTTPS for your site. The certificate is issued by a certificate authority (CA), which takes steps to verify that your web address actually belongs to your organization, thus protecting your customers from man-in-the-middle attacks.
