Website Security

Securing your website is essential especially if you are holding any client information. We install software and initiate security policies on all our websites to help prevent unauthorised use. We also take daily backups of all our managed sites to ensure quick recovery if things do go wrong.

Even if you believe that there is nothing on your website that the bad guys would want, then you’re wrong. In many cases, your website can be used as a zombie distributor of malware, a stepping stone to use your system to attack others.

SSL certificates

We offer the full range of SSL certificates for your website providing the highest levels of security by encrypting data to and from your site. SSL is essential for any website which stores or manages client information including ecommerce sites. Our SSLs use SHA-2 and 2048-bit encryption to stop hackers in their tracks. That’s the strongest encryption on the market today. It’s virtually uncrackable.

  • What is SSL?

    SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. It might sound complex, but it’s really not. SSL Certificates validate your website’s identity, and encrypt the information visitors send to, or receive from, your site. This keeps thieves from spying on any exchange between you and your shoppers.

    SSL Certificates inspire trust and show visitors that you value their privacy. An SSL Certificate protects your customers’ sensitive information such as their name, address, password, or credit card number by encrypting the data during transmission from their computer to your web server.

    SSL is the standard for web security, and a Server Certificate is required by most merchant account services – you’ll need one if you plan to accept credit cards on your website.

  • SSL Benefits

    SSL Certificates inspire trust and show visitors that you value their privacy. An SSL Certificate protects your customers’ sensitive information such as their name, address, password, or credit card number by encrypting the data during transmission from their computer to your web server.

    Search engines such as Google now favour SSL protected sites in their search rankings, having this extra security may also improve your online visibility.

  • How it works

    The SSL “handshake”, When a website visitor enters an SSL-protected area of your website, your SSL certificate automatically creates an encrypted connection with the visitor’s browser.

    The padlock icon appears, Once the connection is complete, a padlock icon and HTTPS prefix appear in the visitor’s browser bar to show them they’re safe to share personal details. If you have a high-assurance EV Certificate, your visitor’s status bar will also turn green.

    You’re good to go,All information passing to and from your website is now scrambled by 2048-bit encryption that’s virtually unbreakable by hackers.

  • How to visitors know I have SSL

    When a visitor enters an SSL-protected page on your website, their browser bar displays a padlock icon and the https:// prefix in the URL address.

    While most Internet users know to look for those SSL indicators, you can also add a site seal to your website to show visitors your site is verified and secured. Visitors can click the seal to view your certificate’s status and details, seeing for themselves that it’s safe to send sensitive information to your website.

    Websites protected by our Platinum EV SSL display a green browser bar as well, giving users the green light.
