10 Jun Secure Your Website from Hackers With SSL Certificate
Jun 10, 2020 2:56 pm
An SSL certificate creates a secure digital tunnel that blocks hackers, thieves and probably Robin Hood from seeing usernames, passwords, credit card numbers and other valuable information on your website.
SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. It might sound complicated, but it’s really not. Just imagine like your wall plug and socket.
SSL certificates validate your website’s identity and encrypt the information visitors data transmission from-and-to inside your website. This keeps thieves from spying on exchanges between you and your shoppers.
No matter how good your web design is done, without SSL, is just a Lamborgini with its doors open.
When you have an SSL certificate protecting your website, your customers can rest assured that the information they’ enter on any secured page is private and can’t be viewed by cyber crooks or getting spied. Get your SSL certificate with WDD Malaysia and secure your server immediately.
The process to secure your server is really simple and it’s only just three steps;
First, the SSL agreement
When a visitor enters an SSL-protected website, your SSL certificate automatically creates a secure, encrypted connection with their web browser. Your site is considered fully secure when SSL is deployed on all pages and subdomains.
Then, the padlock icon appears
Once the connection is established, a padlock icon and https prefix appear in the visitor’s browser bar to show visitors that your website is safe to browse, shop, pay, email you, subscribe to your mailing list and all activities. If you install an Extended Validation (EV) SSL, the browser displays your company name to prove you’re the legit business you are.
And now you’re good to go
All information passing to and from your website is now encrypted, making your sensitive data virtually unhackable. It shows visitors that you’re trustworthy and authentic.
More Reasons To Get SSL Certificate
If you are still not convinced, here are the six reasons why you need an SSL Certificate immediately. Contact WDD Malaysia for a free consultation.
Strong Digital Branding
Premium SSL certificates help increase user confidence by showing you’ve taken the effort to secure your true identity online after being validated by an industry-recognized Certificate Authority. So, your SSL certificate proves to your customers that your company is committed to protecting their data and online experience.
“Not Secure” means High Risk
When visitors type a URL or follow a link to a secure website that doesn’t have an SSL, that site is immediately flagged as “Not Secure.” And that scares potential customers away. But when you have an SSL certificate, any potential “Not Secure” notice goes away – for as long as you have the SSL certificate.
That being said, if you happen to land on a website with no SSL or show “Not Secure” notice, please exit immediately.
Improve SEO Ranking
Search engines heavily favour websites that have https-encrypted and will push them higher in search results. That vastly increases the likelihood customers will find you online.
Regulation Standards Compliance
An SSL certificate provides the strongest protection for online businesses, including standards and regulations such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, HITECH, GDPR and more.
It Builds Trust with Your Customers
