SSL Cert Information

What is an SSL Cert?

A secure server certificate (also called cert) resides on a web server. Combined with the security components built into the web server and the visitor's browser, the secure server certificate provides the following functions for secure e-commerce transactions:

  • Confirmation to a visitor's browser that the company represented by the current domain being visited ( is, in fact, the company listed in the certificate. This prevents someone from just setting up a web site and claiming they are your company and accepting payments from visitors.
  • Sends all confidential information (such as credit card information) from the visitor's browser to the web server in a secure mode using encryption technology that prevents this information from being easily intercepted and used. This prevents someone from obtaining the confidential information during the transmission to the web server.
  • Adds a level of trust between the visitor and you by assuring them that the transfer of information will be encrypted and secure.
