Certificates are usually installed pages that require end-users to submit confidential information over the internet like credit card details or passwords.
A SSL Certificate is the fastest and most effective way for an online business to protect customer transactions and at a low price point. Each certificate comes with a value-added package that makes it perfect for small to medium sized businesses.

Trusted SSL Certificates are issued by Certificate Authorities (CAs). The use of an SSL certificate on a website is usually indicated by a padlock icon in the web browser but it can also be indicated by a green address bar. Once you have done the SSL installation, you can access a site securely by changing the URL from http:// to https://.
