Secure SSL Certificate Solutions


SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificates are an essential component of the data encryption process that make internet transactions secure. They are digital passports that provide authentication to protect the confidentiality and integrity of website communication with browsers.

The SSL certificate’s job is to initiate secure sessions with the user’s browser via the secure sockets layer (SSL) protocol. This secure connection cannot be established without the SSL certificate, which digitally connects company information to a cryptographic key.

Any organisation that engages in e-commerce must have an SSL certificate on its Web server to ensure the safety of customer and company information, as well as the security of financial transactions.

GeoTrust True BusinessID Wildcard Certificate

This certificate allows you to secure multiple fully qualified domains that share the same base domain name that is housed on the same server. This certificate is compatible with more than 99% of browsers and offers top-level encryption that's ideally suited for more robust SMB ecommerce sites.


GeoTrust True BusinessID with EV

This certificate comes with the highest level of security and authentication. With this EV certificate, you will get the most trusted symbol on the internet the green address bar, along with a dynamic site seal and unlimited server licensing.


SSL Encrypts Sensitive Information

The primary reason why SSL is used is to keep sensitive information sent across the Internet encrypted so that only the intended recipient can understand it. This is important because the information you send on the Internet is passed from computer to computer to get to the destination server. Any computer in between you and the server can see your credit card numbers, usernames and passwords, and other sensitive information if it is not encrypted with an SSL certificate. When an SSL certificate is used, the information becomes unreadable to everyone except for the server you are sending the information to. This protects it from hackers and identity thieves.


SSL Provides Authentication

In addition to encryption, a proper SSL certificate also provides authentication. This means you can be sure that you are sending information to the right server and not to an imposter trying to steal your information. Why is this important? The nature of the Internet means that your customers will often be sending information through several computers. Any of these computers could pretend to be your website and trick your users into sending them personal information. It is only possible to avoid this by getting an SSL Certificate from a trusted SSL provider such as VpsCity.


SSL Provides Trust

Web browsers give visual cues, such as a lock icon to make sure visitors know when their connection is secured. This means that they will trust your website more when they see these cues and will be more likely to buy from you. SSL providers will also give you a trust seal that instills more trust in your customers.

HTTPS also protects against phishing attacks. A phishing email is an email sent by a criminal who tries to impersonate your website. The email usually includes a link to their own website or uses a man-in-the-middle attack to use your own domain name. Because it is very difficult for these criminals to receive a proper SSL certificate, they won’t be able to perfectly impersonate your site. This means that your users will be far less likely to fall for a phishing attack because they will be looking for the trust indicators in their browser, such as a green address bar, and they won’t see it.


SSL is required for Compliance

In order to accept credit card information on your website, you must pass certain audits that show that you are complying with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards. One of the requirements is properly using an SSL Certificate.


SSL is the backbone of our secure Internet and it protects your sensitive information as it travels across the world's computer networks. SSL is essential for protecting your website, even if it doesn't handle sensitive information like credit cards. It provides privacy, critical security and data integrity for both your websites and your users' personal information.

The more your customers trust you, the more they buy from you. VpsCity provides the best identity assurance in the industry, so visitors to your website will know who they are doing business with. Smart companies all over the world use VpsCity's SSL certificate solutions, secure site seal, and branding to help build trust.
