To enable customers to make a purchase safely, you’ll need a secure checkout – one that uses SSL (secure socket layer) technology to encrypt sensitive data such as credit card numbers, names and addresses. Otherwise, your site could easily be hacked and this sensitive data spread around the globe in a matter of minutes An SSL secure site is identified by the padlock icon that appears in the lower right corner of the user’s computer screen, and by the letter s after the https in your site address. Knowledgeable buyers look for these signs of security before entering personal data and without them, you won’t make as many sales as you will with an SSL encrypted site.
If you have a shared hosting account with us, you can use the Website Source SSL certification as your site’s security blanket – no charge. Virtual private server (VPS) account owners will have to purchase an SSL certificate but we help out by providing this security certification.
