FAQs – Technical & E-Commerce

FAQs – Technical &

1. Should my website be secured?
If you use your website for the transfer of non-sensitive information probably not, BUT if you do business (take credit cards) online or transfer sensitive (personal or financial) information; you definitely need SSL Certificate in your website.
2. What is a SSL certificate?
A SSL (Certificate (Secure Sockets Layer) is an application that is installed on the web server where all the files of a website are stored.
The SSL application activates the “padlock” in an “http” address therefore making it “https” allowing secure connections by encrypting data from a web server to an Internet browser.

NOTE – Typically, SSL is used to secure credit card transactions, personal data transfer and logins.
SSL is an industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their online transactions with their customers.

3. What is the difference between HTTP and HTTPS?
HTTP or HyperText Transfer Protocol is an application protocol for computers browsers (PCs, smart phones, tablets, etc.) that let a visitor view and share information from a website back and forth to an Internet server.

HTTPS or HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure, is the same HTTP but through a secured connection. Communications through an HTTPS server are encrypted by a secure certificate known as an SSL. The encryption prevents third-parties from eavesdropping on communications to and from the server. HTTPS is excellent for websites where visitors share information that needs to be confidential whether is personal or financial.

4. Is the SSL certificate necessary for my website?
If you’re taking credit card payments directly on your website, you definitely need SSL in place to encrypt your customers’ credit card information. Also, you do need a SSL Certificate if you keep a database (information) of customers or members in your server (where your website is stored).
5. Is a SSL certificate necessary if I use Paypal in my website?
No, if you use PayPal exclusively to accept payments, you don’t need SSL since customers aren’t paying you directly.
