The SSL certificate is a digital certification of your site, which confirms that any exchange of data between the site and your computer takes place on a protected channel. SSL site protection enables you to encode all information passing between the site and client programs.
One important advantage of SSL certificates is that they not only confirm the technological safety of a site where a user is working, but also guarantee its legality. When issuing a certificate, the certification center has the right to administer the domain name, legally registered documents, the office's work, and the company’s phone numbers. The attestation process makes it possible to guarantee to the user that the company possessing this certificate works legally and is not a fly-by-night site.
What is SSL-certificate?
Electronic certificates with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) keys are issued by special organizations called certification centers (Certification Authority, CA). REG.RU works with global market leaders, such as Symantec (VeriSign), GeoTrust, Thawte, Comodo and TrustWave, whose brands and quality level are known worldwide.
The major advantage is that they confirm not only technological security of a website you are working with, but also ensure legal clarity. When issuing a certificate, the certification authority checks the domain name administrative rights, juridical registration documents, functioning of the office and contact information of the company. Conducting such a complex assessment helps to ensure the users that the company, having the given certificate, operates legally and is not a one-day website.
The SSL certificate allows the user to view the following information confirmed by the certification center:
- domain name to which the SSL certificate is registered
- company – certificate owner
- location (city, country)
- certificate period length
- contact data for supplier of SSL certificate
