Buy SSL Certificate¶
SSL certificates are cryptographic keys in the form of a very small file. When installed on a website it enables a secure connection between a user’s web-browser and website server. It makes the information unreadable to everyone else and protects it from hackers and digital identity thieves.
SSL secures data transfers, logins, financial transactions and other sensitive information and is highly becoming a norm.
