Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) creates a connection between your web server and your visitors’ web browser that is secured through encryption. When installed, private information can be transmitted safely and securely, effectively eliminating problems occurring with eavesdropping, data tampering or message forgery. SSL certificates encrypt all traffic that goes through your site and encrypts sensitive information like personal details, credit card numbers, and login credentials. WildCard SSL certificates allow you to secure an unlimited number of first-level subdomains on a single domain name. The benefits of the Wildcard SSL are the included dedicated IP, the dynamic site seal and the extra convenience of using one SSL for an unlimited number of subdomains.
