SSL is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, an encryption technology. SSL creates an encrypted connection between your web server and your visitors' web browser allowing for private information to be transmitted without the problems of eavesdropping, data tampering, or message forgery. To enable SSL on a website, you will need to get an SSL Certificate that identifies you and install it on the server.
If you are transmitting sensitive information on a web site, such as credit card numbers or personal information, you need to secure it with SSL encryption. It is possible for every piece of data to be seen by others unless it is secured by an SSL certificate.
GlobalSign provides the strongest encryption available by using SHA-256 and a minimum of 2048 bit RSA keys. Our IPv6 enabled global infrastructure ensures your website receives the fastest secure site load speed in the industry.
