Provide secure, encrypted communications between a website and an internet browser.
SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer, the protocol which provides encryption over the "WWW" or internet
One of RSH Web's top priorities is providing secure and trusted Web solutions. Our latest project has been upgrading our version of cPanel for better security for all our web hosting customers. This new cPanel version (11.62) requires an SSL certificate installed for all new domains, subdomains, and addon domains. If there is no SSL Certificate associated with newly added domains, cPanel will self-sign an Auto-SSL Certificate and install it
AutoSSL is the solution to one of the biggest pains that exists for every cPanel, WHM User and basically every Website owner. With AutoSSL that problem is a thing of the past. There are no more forms to fill out, and no more certificates to manually copy into place. Once you enable AutoSSL, your websites are automatically secured with a free, Domain Validated SSL certificate. Perhaps more exciting is the fact that your coverage will never lapse, because at expiration time a new SSL cert is requested and automatically installed
Using an SSL also means data is secure between Web Servers and will help your Google SEO ranking. Google rewards sites that are secured with SSL
Ultimately, our move towards implementing SSLs will help your site be more secure for your visitors and therefore will be a more inviting place to do business
What is an SSL Certificate?
An SSL certificate is coding on your web server that provides security for online communications.
When a web browser contacts your website, the SSL certificate enables an encrypted connection.
It’s kind of like sealing a letter in an envelope before sending it through the mail.
How can a SSL help my web site?
SSL certificates inspire trust because each SSL certificate contains identification information.
When you request an SSL certificate, a third party SSL company verifies your organization’s information and issues a unique certificate to you with that information.
This is known as the authentication process.
What does browser compatibility mean?
When a browser or operating system encounters an SSL or code signing certificate, it checks to make sure that the certificate is valid and trusted.
An SSL certificate is trusted if it is signed by a "trusted" or pre-installed root certificate.
How can I tell if a web page is secure?
The Quick Answer - Look At Your Address Bar
You browser will confirm that it has made a secure SSL connection to a server in one (or more) of the following ways:
A web address using “HTTPS” (The extra “S”means it’s a secure connection.
Secure sites show a closed padlock emblem you can click on for security details
And browsers show warning signs when the connection is NOT secure – like a red padlock, a padlock that is not closed, a line going through the website’s address, or a triangle on top of the padlock emblem
