The internet has become the most popular way for people to buy many products and services because of the convenience and speed it offers consumers. Unfortunately, it has also become a prime target for scammers, thieves, hackers and digital criminals. One of the best ways to prevent sensitive information from falling into the wrong hands is to protect it with SSL Encryption which encodes the message and makes it into a nearly undecipherable stream of data that is much more difficult for hackers to intercept from the time it is entered to the time it reaches the intended destination.
Websites that are SSL Encrypted can be easily identified by the ‘padlock icon’ displayed in your browser bar and the “https” prefix that includes an “S” in place of the standard “http” prefix of the domain URL. If your website does not have a valid SSL Certificate and you are offering commercial services or obtaining sensitive information including names, addresses, contact data, credit card entries or other private details about a person via input from visitors, you are creating a significant security risk for anyone who unwittingly makes use of your website.
Savvy consumers who understand the significance of SSL Encryption may quickly leave your website before making any purchases to seek out a similar site which takes their security needs more seriously. Just as owning a restaurant with a foul odor in the dining area is a big incentive for the customer to decide to go spend their money someplace else, owning a commercial website without proper SSL Certification is a similar disincentive to doing any business.
WebsiteSecure.org can help you purchase and install your own valid SSL Certificate. Your e-commerce customers can shop with greater confidence knowing that their online transactions are being protected by your website with up to 256-bit encryption, and they also gain peace of mind from knowing that your site is owned by a merchant who is doing everything possible to ensure a pleasant secure shopping experience.
