Why do I need an SSL Certificate?
In the world of e-commerce, security should be your biggest concern. Although sales on the internet are on the rise, widespread fears about losing private data over the Internet keeps millions of potential shoppers from buying online every year.
According to Connecticut-based IT research firm Gartner, Inc., 15% of U.S. Web shoppers are so worried about online fraud that they don’t shop on the Internet at all. The numbers are even higher in Great Britain, with 41% of respondents to a CyberSource Ltd. survey citing security fears as one reason they don’t shop online.
To run a successful e-commerce store today, you absolutely must assure customers that their credit card numbers and personal information will be kept safe from interception. If consumers perceive that their sensitive data might be compromised online, they are unlikely to do their shopping on the Internet.
Installing an SSL Certificate on your website protects information flowing to and from your site from cyber thieves who would love to steal your personal data. Names, addresses, passwords, account and credit card numbers - all are safe when submitted to a website with a valid SSL.
What is an SSL Certificate?
At its most basic, an SSL Certificate is a piece of software that encrypts all information moving to and from the Certificate holder’s website. This means no exchange between the website and its visitors can be intentionally or accidentally “overheard” by a third party, regardless of whether the visitor is placing an order or just signing up for a newsletter.
