What is SSL and do I require this?

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), is a computing protocol that ensures the security of data sent via the Internet by using encryption.

There is an increasing importance being driven by both browser development companies and Google/ Bing for websites to have an SSL certificate where forms exist. In simple terms this just means that the form data being sent over the internet is encrypted and less likely to then be read by third parties.

We agree that making forms secure helps make the internet more secure and may also help your website rank better in Google and therefore suggest that you consider a SSL certificate for your website.

If you are an ecommerce website then we believe that it is essential that you have a SSL certificate for your website.

Any prices quoted will include an SSL certificate, if this is not required, prices will be reduced accordingly.
