SSL Certificate

Overview

SSL stands for “secure sockets layer”, which encrypts data that is passed between a web server and an Internet user’s computer. SSL is the web standard for creating a secure connection between web browsers and servers. Millions of websites currently utilize SSL to protect sensitive information during online transactions. SSL certificates contain the domain name, company name, address, city, state, and country.


How a Browser Displays a SSL Certificate

The web user is unaware of the complexities of the process, but is only informed by their browser that they are currently protected. This usually comes in the form of a small lock, which can be seen below. This is an important step in developing trust that prevents potential customers from abandoning the checkout process.
