What is an SSL Certificate?

Chelsea Fieler
by Atlantic.Net (8posts) under VPS Hosting

An SSL is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer.  SSL is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral.  If you have sensitive information on your website then an SSL certificate provides security so others cannot see your data.  Without an SSL certificate, your website data is open for all to see.

To request an SSL with Atlantic.Net, please call 1-888-618-DATA (3282) or email [email protected]
