SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer and provides encryption of data that transfers on the protocol.
We offer SSL protocol as https:// on port 443 for the web server exclusively although it can be used on other ports too.

eCommerce websites are usually required - depending on the implementation and gateway - to run the checkout and payment procedure on a secure protocol to encrypt the data transfer. Other clients may want SSL for different reasons such as being secure in general and that is fine as well. In fact, websites that do not have SSL have a "not secure" text and symbol in most browsers. SSL also improves your search engine ranking over websites that do not have SSL.

Talk to us if you have any questions regarding this.
If you're ready, buy your SSL certificate from us and send us a ticket to install it for you.
