Today’s online shoppers are savvy about online security. Before completing a transaction or sharing personal information with you, online visitors need to know that your website can be trusted. Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Certificates provide a visual indicator that your website is legitimate and secure. When choosing an SSL Certificate, consider the brand recognition, turn-around time and investment cost that is right for your business. Start building consumer confidence and online profit by securing your website with an SSL Certificate today.
Security and trust is essential when you’re operating an online business. Your visitors need to know they can trust you and that their data will be safe. By installing an SSL Certificate on your website you’ll be proving your identity and encrypting anything sent to your server, such as personal or financial data. This means even if someone is listening, they’ll not be able to read what’s been sent.

SSL Certificates should be used to secure your website transactions, logins, webmail and connections. We offer you the highest levels of security, confidence and trust in your web site and online brand. We take pride in our security and the security of our customers.
The end-user’s browser requests a secure channel (via “https:”) from the server, and then – if the server has an SSL Certificate – the browser and the server negotiate their highest common encryption strength (e.g., 256-bits) and exchange the corresponding encryption keys (this exchange is normally done using 2048-bit encryption strength). The 256-bit encryption key is then used for this particular instance of SSL, for all from-to exchanges between the browser and the server. The next https session will have a new session key. The SSL Certificate guarantees the security of the connection between the browser and the server. Once data is in the server, it is up to the server admin to make sure the data remains protected.
For maximum compatibility you should have a Dedicated IP Address assigned to your web hosting account with Digital Pacific. If you have a Dedicated Server or VPS, you can assign the certificate to your main server hostname or any site on the server that is hosted on a dedicated IP address. The reason for needing a separate IP address per domain you want to secure is that the SSL protocol is bound to dedicated IP addresses, while a certificate is bound only to a domain name. Therefore, any certificate-enabled web site should have its own unique IP address. The IP can be real (routable) or internal (RFC 1918 non-routable address), but it must be unique on a server.
Dedicated IPs can take up to 24 hours to be active on your domain and are available for $60/yr if your service is hosted with Digital Pacific, and you can order one by clicking here
