Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a security protocol used between a web server and browser to establish an encrypted data link. The trust between the browser and the server depends upon the browser's ability to trust the SSL certificate. It does this by checking where the certificate was issued. If the SSL certificate is issued by a Certificate Authority (CA) that is known and trusted by the browser, the browser extends that trust to the web site secured by the SSL certificate.
We provide a dedicated IP address with a 256-bit GeoTrust (QuickSSL or RapidSSL) certificate installed. The SSL certificate request is validated against the domain name using an automated process by the Certificate Authority (CA) rather than using physical documentation making these certificates cheaper to install. There is no difference in the level of encryption between this certificate and those used by the leading banks.
The SSL certificates we use are recognised by over 99% of all browsers.
Notes: RapidSSL is a GeoTrust brand. GeoTrust was founded by a few key people within Equifax Secure Inc and in 2001, GeoTrust aquired Equifax Secure. In 2006, Verisign aquired GeoTrust.
We are also now able to offer free SSL for any site hosted on our servers using certificates from Let's Encrypt™. Please feel free to contact us regarding this.
