Everything About Payment Processing

What is SSL and why should I use it on my website?

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a client (a web browser). SSL is used to protect online transactions and ensure that confidential and sensitive information (e.g. credit card information, user login credentials, personal data) is encrypted and transmitted securely. In order to make your website SSL-secured, you should get an SSL Certificate from CA (Certificate Authority) and install it on your server. An SSL-secured website normally has a lock icon or a green bar, and begins with https rather than http.

The benefits of having SSL connection:

  • Your online shop is protected from hackers and identity thieves.
  • Potential customers recognize your website as secured and reliable.
  • You do not have to worry about the data security and can fully concentrate on doing business.
  • SSL improves your website’s ranking on major search engines.
