SSL Certificates are necessary for those sites where a user is supposed to submit highly private and confidential information. It augments the website’s security and prevents imposters from doing fraud under your website’s name.
These certificates are of different types. Some organizations need SSL certificate for encryption only, while others need to exhibit their integrity and want to build a stable and reliable relationship with customers. So which SSL certificate will be best for your website? Here are the three different types of SSL Certificates which can help you determine the right choice for your website.
When your visitors are submitting personal and sensitive information on your website it is necessary to make them use a SSL encrypted connection. A SSL encrypted connection ensures that the sensitive data that is being submitted on a website goes through a secure encrypted route which cannot be read by anyone except the party that you are submitting the information to. If you need help, using a SSL encrypted connection that BodHost offers to our shared hosting customers then please read our article on “forcing your visitors to use the shared ssl”.
From time to time, our technical support department is asked how to direct website visitors to view a website over HTTPS. Here is an example:
If a visitor goes to a website using http://mydomain.com, this is not secure so you can force them to always use the shared SSL certificate which is secure and encrypted so no one can see any data being transmitted except the party sending and the party receiving it. Shared SSL’s are included on all our Shared Hosting plans as standard. If you are not familiar with SSL certificates, please view our article on it. If you have a dedicated SSL and want to make all of your website traffic use your dedicated SSL we have a helpful tutorial on that on our knowledge base page.
