SSL Certificates and Configuration
Secure Connections to your Website and Data
Communication between websites, APIs, and integrations should be protected. This is especially true if any of that data includes payment information, personal information (PII) or protected health data (PHA) covered by HIPAA.
SSL certificates are part of a mechanism used to encrypt data between two points - often a website host and your web browser, but also between systems such as API clients and servers.
After registration and validation, SSL certificates are installed on your hosting server.
SSL certificates help protect data but are also a component of search engine optimization. Search engines recognize secure websites and will rank them higher than non-secure websites.
All modern web browsers expect your website to be secured with an SSL certificate as do your website visitors. Modern browsers will show a prominent alert for a website address which is not secured (https).
There are many different types of SSL certificate with varying types of business validation and liability coverage. Shore FX can help you select, register and install any type of SSL certificate on our hosting services.
