What’s SSL? SSL stands for the English Secure Sockets Layer. It is an encryption technology introduced by the Netscape company in the nineties of the previous century. SSL builds an encrypted connection between an Internet server and the visitor’s Internet browser. It enables you to send private data, while making tapping, data manipulation or message falsification impossible.
At present, when the vast majority of financial transactions is conducted via the Internet, and websites are required to fulfil rigorous standards for personal data protection, having an SSL certificate becomes a necessity. The investment in SSL certification is not only a requirement (The Chrome 68 edition is out now and it marks websites without SSL as “not secure”), but there are many practical reasons to own one.
In accordance with what was formerly announced, Google released the latest, number 68, edition of their Chrome browser on the 24th of July 2018. With its release, the long-awaited changes concerning the signalization of pages without SSL certification came into operation. At present, upon entering a page unprotected with SSL, the latest Chrome browser will signal it is insecure, and proper information will be displayed next to the location bar of the browser.
The SSL Wildcard protocol is a certificate that enables user to secure an unlimited number of subdomains within a given domain. Its primary advantage is that it provides protection not only for the domain itself, but also for all the subdomains it contains.
If you own an enterprise on the internet, the Google Adwords tool should be well familiar to you. It may be this particular tool that allows you to advertise your company and attract new customers, and therefore information about your account’s suspension could cause the sales of your company to fall dramatically. Unfortunately, this is a pretty realistic scenario if, for any reason, your website has not been secured with an SSL certificate.
