Secure your website

SSL stands for "Secure Sockets Layer". Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol designed to enable applications to transmit information back and forth securely. Applications that use the Secure Sockets Layer protocol inherently know how to give and receive encryption keys with other applications, as well as how to encrypt and decrypt data sent between the two.

How does SSL work? Some applications that are configured to run SSL include web browsers like Internet Explorer and FireFox, email programs like Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, Apple Mail.app, and SFTP (secure file transfer protocol) programs, etc. These programs are automatically able to receive SSL connections.

To establish a secure SSL connection, however, your application must first have an encryption key assigned to it by a Certification Authority in the form of a Certificate. Once it has a unique key of its own, you can establish a secure connection using the SSL protocol.

Websites that require a dedicated SSL will also require a dedicated IP address which will incur a monthly charge of $2 per month. To configure and install the dedicated SSL, the customer has the option to use the control panel or send the SSL to PlexHosted. When PlexHosted configures and installs the dedicated SSL on behalf of the customer there will be a one-time fee of $50.

SSL and Consumers

Web browsers automatically notify users when connections not secure. Your potential e-Commerce customers are used to secure shopping, and will NOT shop on a website unless their browser assures them it's safe to do so!

Without secure SSL Encryption, most of your customers will simply shop elsewhere. You cannot offer secure authentication to your customers without an SSL Certificate.
