SSL certificates

Inspire trust, protect the confidentiality of your website data, encrypt your e-commerce website transactions, improve your SEO.

Why choose an SSL certificate and which one?

Today, your brand's image is closely associated with how secure your website is. To ensure your website's credibility HTTPS should be enabled. HTTPS is active when a green padlock appears in the browser address bar (Chrome, Firefox, etc.). This informs visitors that the content of the website comes from a secure and non-pirated source.

SSL also guarantees the confidentiality of data that is being sent between the browser and the website. A certificate authority must verify the SSL certificate of the website in question beforehand. In addition, HTTPS is now one of Google's ranking criteria.

However, not all SSL certificates are valid. Only EV SSL certificates can guarantee that a website is really managed by the website publisher and that it exists legally. When you visit a website secured by an EV SSL certificate, the EV SSL certificate displays the name of the company in question near the famous green lock.
