Online Security and SSL Certificates

In 2008 sales over the internet in the UK totalled over £222bn, up from £65bn in 2004 (statistics.gov.uk). With no signs of this growth slowing down, the need for businesses to be online trading securely has never been greater.

If you have an e-commerce website and want more transactions through your site you have to take online security serious. You can start with asking your self this simple question: “Do i trust this site with my credit card details?” If the answer is yes, you are half the way there.

Trade Online Safely and Securely

Today, online security is becoming more important as e-commerce is increasing at an explosive rate. Your responsibility also increases as a site owner to provide a safer customer experience on your site. Minimising the online threats is a challenging task. However, you do not have to be a security guru to know how to handle sensitive customer information. There are simple security measures you can take to create a safer environment for your customers.

As a website owner, you can trade online safely in the knowledge that the SSL secure connection will make sure all important information is kept out of reach from prying eyes. Having an SSL certificate will keep your visitors coming back time and time again, safe in the knowledge you provide a secure service.

What is SSL?

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral. SSL is an industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their online transactions with their customers.

Benefits of SSL

Some of the benefits of having an SSL certificate installed on your website:

  • Increase conversions
  • Enhanced reputation
  • Store information securely
  • Business Validation

    Nice post. I finally took the plunge and bought an ssl certificate for my site, although I had no idea how confusing it would be to configure. I eventually got things straightened out, but I can’t help thinking there must be a more straightforward way to secure a web site. I dread the switch to IPV6!
