SSL Hosting

Everything a website owner needs to know about SSL

Introduction

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. It is a protocol (set of rules) that establishes a secure connection between the website visitor and the web server, i.e. information sent between the two can not be accessed by third parties.

Where it all started

The SSL protocol aimed to create a safe way to encrypt data that would be independent of any operating system or platform. 

Netscape initiated the project about 24 years ago, in 1994, during a time when the firm was researching how to address increasing concerns about sending confidential data over unsecured Internet lines. 

The company was specifically trying to establish a secure connection between its own Netscape Navigator web browser and the servers where the data was stored. 

It designed SSL to comply with AES (Advanced Encryption Standard), which at the time emerged as the gold standard for encrypted communications. SSL is able to secure the transmission of all information that passes via the TCP protocol.

Who uses SSL technology?

Some of the biggest users of SSL technology include banks and credit card companies. However, no website that accepts financial and/or personal information from visitors should ever operate without SSL. Major companies know this, which is why one can visit any reputable international site such as Paypal, Goldman Sachs, or Netflix and they will use SSL to secure data. 

To see this in action simply type paypal.com or netflix.com in your browser. When the site loads look at the address bar at the top, and you will see it starts with 'https'. Whenever you see this you know the site is protected by SSL technology.

Pros and Cons of SSL

We've already managed the biggest benefit of SSL: It secure the data connection between a website and the web server. This means the site can safely accept credit cards and confidential information from visitors. 

What many website owners do not know is that about two years ago Google added SSL as a ranking factor, which means that a website using this technology will be ranked higher than one without. 

There are no significant cons to this technology, except that the website owner needs to purchase and install an SSL certificate to make the technology work, but the cost is insignificant compared to the benefits.

The advantages of using this technology for web hosting

A website owner who collects confidential/personal data from his or her visitors should under no circumstances go without an SSL connection. Just think of the tremendous damage to your public reputation if it comes to light that your website collected even something as simple as email addresses and that information leaked to a third party who then used it for malicious purposes.
