SSL certificate

What is SSL certificate?

This is a protocol designed to protect the exchange of data between client and server. It does that by encrypting the information transaction. This prevents malevolent third-parties from analyzing or stealing sensitive information.
When your website has a properly installed SSL certificate, all of data will be secured by an algorithm that creates an encryption, which can be deciphered by the proper user only.

When do I need an SSL certificate?

Modern day best practices dictate that every website owner should have an SSL certificate, because your customers deserve the maximum level of safety they can get. However SSL certificates are only mandatory for websites that collect sensitive client data such as personal information, credit card data and more. An SSL certificate will dramatically increase the trust your customers have for you.

At NS1 we believe that every website owner should purchase an SSL certificate to ensure maximum levels of security for his users. Studies have shown that an SSL certificate may actually increase your sales just because your website looks and is more trustworthy.

3. SSL certificate with extended validation (EV). This is the highest tier of SSL certificates.

The “green bar” means the highest level of safety for your users and clients appreciate it a lot. To get this certificate the issuer will perform a detailed audit of your company to ensure its legitimacy. Such certificates are:
