What is an SSL Certificate?
SSL Certificates enable you and your customers to complete transactions with the assurance that no one else can read or change information as it travels over the Internet. This leads to increased visitor conversion rate, lower Web site abandonment and an increase in average purchase price. Internet users are becoming more aware of the need to see an "https" prefix in the address bar or the padlock icon on their browser when they submit personal information. An SSL certificate lets you assure your site visitors that their information will be passed securely to your website.
Why would I need an SSL Certificate?
Note to COOLSite Customers
If you have an online e-commerce store site that accepts online orders and credit cards.
If you collect personal information on your website forms.
If you want to help your customers ensure they are visiting your actual website, avoiding phishing scams etc.
By default we allow you to use our *.colony1.net secure certificate for the checkout area to reduce costs on your end. You will see this in the address bar of your browser when you click Go To Check Out. So basically upon check out, the browser is going from your domain and then redirected to *.colony1.net until the checkout is complete and then it goes back to your domain. Routing to our *.colony1.net cert is just not professional and also can scare some customers away due to the browser warnings. The most professional thing to do is get your own SSL Certificate so you have continued branding and trust. Any professional company that processes credit cards has their own SSL Certificate for their own domain.
