Ecommerce Questions:

Answer:

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a method of ensuring that information submitted through your Ecommerce website is secure and cannot be accessed by unauthorized users. When a site offers an SSL-secured form, the information submitted via that form (typically credit card information) is encrypted using a special “certificate key” and then decrypted with another key after it has been transmitted.

When users access an Ecommerce site secured with SSL using either Netscape or Internet Explorer, a symbol displays in their browser windows indicating that the site is secure.

An SSL Certificate, or a digital certificate, is an electronic document that contains the information necessary to establish a secure SSL connection, particularly on an Ecommerce site. When used in credit card transactions, the website collecting the credit card information and the site to which the information is being transmitted must both have an SSL Certificate.

We can provide both the secure server and secure server certificate needed to support SSL certificate.
