SSL Certificates

When setting up an e-commerce web site you need to know if you want to process credit cards online, off-line at a terminal, or accept no credit cards at all. Processing credit cards online requires a merchant account. Using a payment gateway, orders are passed from an encrypted page, (SSL), to your merchant account. They then verify the validity of the credit card, determines if sufficient funds are available, charge the card the appropriate amount, deposit the funds into your bank account and notify you of the transaction. We can assist you in getting your merchant account and your payment gateway setup.

When taking customers credit card numbers, your customers want to be assured their personal information is being sent securely over the internet and cannot be intercepted by unscrupulous persons. Technologies like "Secure Socket Layers (SSL)" are used to encrypt data as it is being transmitted. SSL requires the use of a "certificate", which can be thought of as a "key" that locks the incoming data, and unlocks it when it arrives so the information can be used.

If you are using a shared hosting plan you can use one of our certificates or you can purchase one of your one. For example, secure.yourwebsite.com. If you are using one of our dedicated servers you will need to purchase your own certificate.
To simplify the process for you we can obtain the certificate on your behalf.
