Digital SSL Certificates
Why are SSL certificates necessary?
SSL (Secure Socket Layer) Certificates are required for establishing an encrypted connection between a client and a server. Standard traffic goes over the Internet in an unencrypted form which means that anyone with sufficient technical expertise and tools can easily “eavesdrop” on the conversations between two parties. SSL security encrypts the data moving between a client and a server, making it extremely difficult to intercept and decode the information.
Costs of SSL CoA Certificates used to be in the region of £300-400 per certificate from CoA (Certificate of Authority) providers such as VeriSign and Thawte. Onyx can now offer you SSL certificates starting at just £99.00 per year, replacing short lived Self-Signed Certificates, to improve you security.
So with prices now much lower our customers can now adopt best practice by replacing the Self-Signed Certificates with a Certificate Authority (CoA) signed certificate.
SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology protects your online transactions and helps increase trust in your web site in three essential ways:-
- encryption of data during online transactions
- presentation of unique authenticated information about the certificate owner
- verification of the certificate of authority (CoA) as to when the certificate was issued.
