SSL Certificate – Website Security
This post is not really biltong related but important none the less. Running a website, these days means a lot of work in the background that nobody really sees.
Keeping your site updated with all the software components does take time as you need to make sure the latest updates are not going to cause any problems for your website.
Keep Your Website Secure
Keeping your site secure from hackers or security breaches are important too. You wouldn’t like to lose any of your customer information to a third party.
Therefore keeping complaint with the latest security software is essential too.
Imagine a customer shopping on your website and their credit card details get intercepted while they purchase items. That would be the worst feeling in the world.
For this reason, we updated to SSL. SSL is known as Secure Sockets Layer, this is the standard security technology for setting up an encrypted link between a web server and a browser.
You can see if a site has SSL, look for the padlock symbol, you can see an example of it on this page towards the top left next to the address bar.
This shows that this site is secure. There is a secure link between your browser and the web server.
So, if you were buying an item from this website, your credit card details would be encrypted.
Choose A Good Web Hosting Provider
This gives us the peace of mind knowing they installed the SSL Certificate correctly and our website is secure.
As we are moving to offer further services in the future. We know that customers buying items from our website will be completely secure and safe. If your debating whether to install an SSL Certificate, I would certainly recommend it.
