SSL Certificates: Protect Online Information

The number of critical information transiting through the Internet is constantly increasing. It is the responsibility of your company to ensure that all data is secure. This is particularly true for e-commerce businesses. 

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) Certificates are commonly used to securely manage data transmission over the Internet. As an Extraordinary hosting customer, you can choose from a range of SSL Certificate options listed below. 

SSL 256-bit Certificates

Digital web certificates are electronic files that are used to uniquely identify people and resources over networks such as the Internet. Digital web certificates also enable secure, confidential communication between two parties. As the adoption and use of 256-bit SSL certificates has increased, so has their acceptance as the standard for e-commerce enabled web sites or any site that collects private information from users such as credit card numbers, account numbers or passwords.

We can provide the following SSL Certificate options for our hosting customers:
