Superior website security

Security is crucial to your website’s success, yet it is still one of the most frequently overlooked elements in developing an online presence. If your website collects any customer information – including payment information, email addresses, and/or passwords – you need to be certain that data is absolutely safe.

Approximately 63% of online shoppers will not purchase from a website that does not display a trustmark or security policy. Provide a secure online environment and you’ll build customer trust, which translates into increased sales.

Website visitors need SSL protection when they:

  • Purchase products online
  • Register for a service or newsletter
  • Enter a secure members’ area
  • Choose a password
  • Fill in a request form

Trusted security for your website visitors – Let them know they are safe.

GlobalSign SSL certificates from HostPapa do more than offer state‑of‑the‑art data encryption. When you purchase an SSL certificate, a strict process will be followed to validate your business credentials. Once validation is complete, your website will be equipped with the trusted signs of a secure site, including “https” in your website address and a closed padlock. You’ll have the credibility and security required to turn site visitors into paying customers.

Satisfaction is our priority, and we back it up with our guarantee.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is SSL?+

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. An SSL certificate offers your website and your customers an added layer of protection in two key ways. First, an SSL certificate will authenticate your website’s identity, assuring your customers you are who you say you are. It will also encrypt the information visitors enter on your site, keeping it safe during transmission and storage. If you have a GlobalSign SSL certificate from HostPapa on your site, your customers know they can fully trust you to take care of their data.

What are the benefits of having an SSL certificate on my website?+

Having an SSL certificate is critical for your online reputation. It lets your website visitors know they can trust you – that you value their privacy and are making the extra effort to ensure all their data is encrypted during transmission from their computer to yours. A GlobalSign SSL certificate from HostPapa will protect all customer information you collect, including names, addresses, passwords, and credit card numbers.

An SSL certificate is the standard for web security. You will be required to have one if you plan to accept credit cards or other payment options on your site. In other words: if you are running an online business, you will be required to have an SSL certificate.

How will people know my website is safe?+

Once a GlobalSign SSL certificate has been purchased, installed, and is active on your website, visitors will be able to see a number of trusted signs that your site is secure. When visitors enter an SSL-protected page on your website, they will see a locked padlock and the “https” in their browser address bar. You will also have the option (recommended!) to add a security seal on your web pages. This seal will clearly communicate that your website has been verified and is secure. A visitor may click on this SSL seal to view the details and status of your website’s SSL certificate.

Who uses SSL certificates?+

Ideally, any website that accepts or transmits sensitive information should be protected by SSL. These include, but are not limited to:

  • eCommerce operations and retailers
  • Service providers
  • Banks and financial institutions
  • Educational institutions
  • Government agencies
  • Companies with intranets
  • Any website with a “members-only” area
  • Many others
