Starting an online business can be exciting and profitable. After setting up a domain name, it is important to get a SSL. What does SSL stand for? An SSL certificate assures customers that they are purchasing from a secure site. Customers like the professional look of SSL certificates. For a person to receive free SSL certificates, they must be reviewed and marked by a third party as safe. Many people view these types of certificates on a regular basis and are not aware of it. These certificates are also essential if an online business owner will need to gather vital and personal information from the customer such as shipping addresses and in rare cases, social security numbers, names and telephone numbers. Because of the increase of online scams, customers are growing anxious of purchasing services and products over the Internet. Getting SSL encryption can put the customer's mind at ease.

Before SSL was created, it was almost impossible to ensure the privacy of customers and consumers all over the world. Customer's credit card numbers were being accessed due to online transactions. This has caused a decrease in sales for some businesses that require credit card processing for merchandise and goods. Wildcard SSL encryptions makes it almost impossible for anyone attain personal information through the information. This encryption is starting to grow more and more advanced to combat the unethical behaviours of decoders and hackers. The encryption uses a 128-bit code that is almost impossible to break. The higher the bit of the code, the harder it is to hack into. Many of the world's biggest financial institutions (such as banks) use the 128 bit key. This key will help combat against fraud and provides the most security for client's data.

How Does SSL Work?

The SSL makes sure to perform browser checks to make sure the customer is connecting to the real site. There have been instances where sites have been duplicated to seem like the authentic site. Many banks have this problem and the scam is called, phishing. The SSL will also determine encryption types. The server and browser will continue to work together as they send unique codes that are scrambled. This means that all webpages are secured. In most of the cases, Internet marketers and/or website builders will link their IP address directly with the certificate. It is a good idea to get separate certificates for multiple domains. This is important so each IP address will have their own accounts. This has been the norm for many Internet marketers.


For any Internet marketer who will be asking their clients for personal information, it is very essential to get a certificate which provides protection against customer's personal information. With the increase of identity fraud, it will let clients have a piece of mind. Some Internet marketers will place SSL on one page and forget the other pages. It is important to add the encryption on all pages. Other form of scams that a SSL certificate can protect against is phishing, shopping fraud and data interception.
