SSL certificates create an encrypted connection and establish trust.
One of the most important components of online business is creating a trusted environment where potential customers feel confident in making purchases. SSL certificates create a foundation of trust by establishing a secure connection. To assure visitors their connection is secure, browsers provide special visual cues that we call EV indicators -- anything from a green padlock to branded URL bar.
SSL certificates have a key pair: a public and a private key. These keys work together to establish an encrypted connection. The certificate also contains what is called the “subject,” which is the identity of the certificate/website owner.
To ensure a website is operating with an SSL certificate their web address will start with "https" rather than just "http". Our site will always operate with this certificate to keep all your information secure.
