Here’s what we can do to help you secure your website:

1. SSL Certificate and Installation
SSL stands for ‘Secure Sockets Layer’ and is a standard security technology to establish encryption of data transferred from one server to another. In order to switch from a HTTP to HTTPS secure website, you’ll need an SSL certificate which comprises of small data files that digitally bind a cryptographic key to your company details including company name, location, domain name, and server or hostname.

We can generate an SSL certificate from a trusted certificate authority and install this onto your web server. Doing so activates a padlock display and HTTPS secure protocol. Typically, the SSL certificate is used to secure sensitive information such as credit card transactions, data transfer and personal login details.

To make you aware there are different types of SSL certificates available, including EV SSL (Extended Validation), OV SSL (Organisation Validated) and DV SSL (Domain Validated). However, the encryption levels are the same for all. The only differences are how you want them to look in the address bar and the verification processes needed to obtain the SSL certificate.
