Rapid SSL is a trusted Certificate Authority specializing in SSL and web security technologies. Ever wonder why some URLs begin with http:// and others with https://? The “s” is a sign that the website is protected by a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Certificate. SSL technology was developed by Netscape to create secure connections on websites where sensitive information is entered. SSL Certificates are small data files consisting of a paired public/private encryption key that digitally binds a server to a specific browser, ensuring the safety and privacy of any information shared to that server. This means that when customers input their credit card number to make a purchase, or enter their email to sign up for a newsletter, the information will be visible to the server and no one else.
Whether your site is running an online store or registration and contact forms, SSL Certificates are essential for establishing trust with your users and protecting their information. Any piece of data can possibly be seen by others if it’s not encrypted. Once the SSL protocol is installed on your server, RapidSSL uses an automated validation process to quickly verify control of your domain name, generating visual cues that let users know their information is protected by a secure connection.
