A Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Certificate is used to secure information which is exchanged between your website and your site visitors.

SSL Certificates

Secure your Website and build Trust with clients

When an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) Certificate is added to your website, all information sent to and from your website is encrypted (or scrambled). As a result, visitors to your site will see their web browser display visual indications that your site is secure and that they may enter personal information or payment information with confidence.

An SSL Certificate provides the following security benefits for your Connecticut or Rhode Island small business website:

  • Verification Process to verify website ownership
  • Advanced verification is also available which verifies the overall legitimacy of the business through extensive vetting
  • Website indicators, including: https:// utilization, padlock, and verification seal image
  • Advanced verification also includes a Green (Trusted) address bar within your web browser
  • Certificate verifies domain control
  • 256-bit encryption
  • SSL Installation Tool to verify the certificate is properly installed

When To Use SSL

Does my website need an SSL Certificate?

Many websites are designed to communicate information to prospective clients or customers. If your website simply serves as an informative guide to your products and services, then an SSL Certificate is probably of little value. However, if your website collects information which might be sensitive (such as the completion of a job application) or it includes a "members only" section which is secured with a login of some sort, then you can help to build trust with your clients or prospects by utilizing an SSL Certificate on your website.

The cost is minimal and InnoTech can obtain and install the certificate on your behalf and manage its renewal each year.
