Get Free SSL/TLS Certificate and Protect Your Website

We all must have observed that a few website URLs begin with "HTTP://" and a few others especially when you are trying to transfer sensitive information have an extra "s" - https://. To make it more clearly, the additional "s" denotes that your connection to the specific website is protected and encoded. The information you provide is securely transferred to that website. The technology that influences that "s" is known as SSL, which refers to Secure Sockets Layer. SSL is the typical security methodology for creating an encoded link between a web server and a web browser. This connection guarantees that all information delivered between the web browser and server remain secretive.

Why is SSL Necessary For Your Website?

  •  SSL Encodes Delicate Information

    The primary purpose of using SSL to retain private information that is shared using the Internet is encrypted, and only the intended receiver can view it. While any sensitive information like card numbers, login ID and passwords that are shared across the web passes via multiple networks to reach the destination server. If not encrypted using SSL, the data becomes viewable by anyone in the system. When the data is encoded using the free SSL certificate, it becomes inaccessible except for the destined user and is safe from data theft.

  •  SSL Provides Trust

    Web browsers show visible indications, such as a padlock sign or a green bar, through which the visitors know that their connection is fortified. More the trust is more the customers your website gains. SSL providers also offer a trust stamp that encourages more confidence in your clients. Our SSL product ensures the protection from the phishing email. These emails are sent by hackers who try to hijack your data.

How SSL Does Protect Essential Information?

SSL guards data by encoding the data transmission between a visitor's site and the vendor website. As the users depend on a good website traffic flow to maintain page ranking higher and increase the revenue, SSL certificate is a must. Initially, the website's SSL certificate validity is verified when a user attempts to visit the site. When a user tries to visits a site, it initially checks to see if there is an SSL/TLS certificate linked to it. When it is confirmed, both the client and the server begin with the standard SSL handshake methodology as specified below:
  •     Step 1. Client Hello

    Data that the server has to transfer with the client is verified using SSL. This consists of the SSL account number, encryption settings, period-specific information.

  •     Step 2. Server Hello

    The intended information that is to be received from the client is verified using the version number, Encryption settings and data.

  •     Step 3. Verification

    The client validates the server’s SSL certificate information and creates a cipher code. Then it encodes the data using the server's public key and transfers the coded pre-master secret to the server.

  •     Step 4. Decoding of the information

    The server employs its private key to decode the pre-master secret code that is being transferred. Both Server and Client execute steps to produce the master secret with the established cipher.

  •     Step 5. Secured connectivity establishment

    The handshake which consumes a few hundred milliseconds, a protected connection is enforced which makes the client and server to connect securely.

  • #At all times use https for secure connections
