AutoPot SSL certificate for safe interaction over the Internet
In today’s climate, security is key online. An SSL certificate meets the demand for safe interaction over the net.
When you walk into a shop you can see who and what you are dealing with,
and be confident that should you desire you’ll be able to speak to manager or
owner. Online visitors have no way of knowing who owns the Website or what
they are seeing is what they will get. Visitors on the net want proof of ownership and
know that other users cannot intercept the personal information they send. This is possible thanks to SSL certificates, which the AutoPot Watering Systems website and online shop operate under.
SSL, short for secure sockets layer, is a protocol developed for transmitting private documents via the Internet. SSL works by using a private key to encrypt data that’s transferred over the SSL connection, such as credit card numbers.
Conventionally URLs that require an SSL connection start with https: instead of http:. The certificate is installed on a secure server and used to identify the merchant using it and to encrypt the credit card, and other sensitive data.
Across the AutoPot website and Online Shop, areas where sensitive data are requested are automatically protected by SSL.
Further information regarding SSL can be found by visiting the Wikipedia.
