SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a technology that protects your online shop or sign-in page. The Secure Sockets Layer certificates, also known as digital certificates, cipher the delicate information requested from web site visitors like place of residence, date of birth, Social Security number, driver's licence or debit card info, so that nobody could use this info for illicit purposes.

Your website guests can identify a secure web site by the ‘https' component at the beginning of the URL, or by the lock symbol in the browser window, or by a special seal on the site.

The digital certificates offer two hundred and fifty six-bit encryption, and include a $10 000 warranty and a static site seal for your site. You need to get a static IP address.
