SSL or Secure Sockets Layer Certificates
All our websites and website packages come with a SSL certificate.
An SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) puts the padlock icon on the address bar of the viewer's web browser, and verifies that the business is the owner of the website. This not only builds trust for you and your business, it makes it far more difficult for website scammers and thieves to impersonate your website.
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) ensures that all data passing from your customers web browser is sent to your website securely. Data such as credit card information, Logins, and other sensitive data will be encrypted. SSL makes your website more secure.
SSl not only protects the data transmission from browsers to servers, it also adds protection for server to server communication as well as web applications.
As from July 2018, the Google chrome browser will be alerting users from their address bar that the site may not be secure. Initial statistics on this show that approximately 40% of viewers going to non SSL sites are leaving immediately since this was introduced. This is obviously not an ideal situation for those websites without SSL.
Our SSL certificates start at $45 per year for those wishing to purchase an SSL from Encompass Web Design.
