Reasons Ecommerce Businesses Need an SSL

Reasons to get an SSL

  • Build online trust with potential customers
  • Protect your businesses liability
  • Protect your customer’s information


Why your ecommerce business needs an SSL (Secure Socket Layer)

SSL encrypts data personally identifiable information like credit cards numbers and prevents the maliciously inclined from stealing personal information. An SSL protected page has an address begins with “https” and usually has a padlock icon (or similar icon) at the bottom of the page or in the address bar of your web browser.

Your browser encrypts the data and sends to the receiving website. A browser by itself cannot secure the entire transaction and that’s why it’s imperative for ecommerce website developers to do their part in educating their clients about SSL’s.

How do SSL Certificates work?

The SSL certificate sits on a secure server to encrypt data and identify the website. The SSL certificate contains information about the certificate holder which helps verify the website belongs to whom it says it belongs to. It also authenticates the domain the certificate was issued to, the name of the Certificate Authority who issued the certificate, the root, and the country where the certificate was issued in.
