Do you need SSL?
By installing a SSL certificate on a website, and using the HTTPS url, you can
protect your customers' sensitive data. This is typically used in shopping carts
on the screens where the customers enter their personal data and payment data.
The data is encrypted during transmission to protect it from prying eyes. If you
plan on running an ecommerce website, then you definitely need to have an SSL certificate
to protect your customers and yourself.
You need SSL if:
- You want to protect user names and passwords on login screens.
- You will be collecting credit card numbers from customers.
- You will be collecting sensitive information from site visitors.
Only for InternetPlanners.com customers:
The above prices are only for hosting customers. You must have an active hosting account
to purchase certificates from us. If you want to purchase a certificate, please issue a Trouble Ticket telling us which
type of certificate you would like. When using your own certificate your domain also needs to be on a dedicated IP address ( $2.00 per month).
