A security certificate is used to secure connections from your visitor’s web browser to your website. Data communicated between the visitor’s web browser and your website is encrypted, which means that even if the data were to be intercepted, it would be unreadable. This protects personal information.
Imagine sending a letter through the post. It is possible that someone could open, read, and perhaps even alter the letter before it reaches its destination.
By encrypting the letter before it is sent, nobody except you and the recipient knows how to decrypt it, keeping the content of the letter secure.
A security certificate has merit for two reasons:
They were previously for websites that collected sensitive data such as credit cards, but since then standards and compliance have changed, now extending to all business types and websites.
Our annual fee is £250+VAT, which covers the purchase, install, and management of the renewal of the security certificate. Insecure connections will automatically be upgraded to be secure.
