SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a protocol that safeguards your online store or logon page. The SSL certificates, also called digital certificates, encrypt the sensitive details required from site visitors such as place of residence, date of birth, national identity number, driving licence or debit card details, so that nobody could use this information for illicit purposes.

Your website visitors can identify a protected web site by the ‘https' component at the beginning of the web site address, or by the locked padlock symbol in the browser window, or by a special seal on the web site.

The SSL certificates feature two hundred and fifty six-bit encryption, and include a $10 000 warranty and a static site seal for your website. You need to have a static IP address.
