					People are getting smart about online security. Now a day 鈥檚 more and more of
them are looking for the lock icon and "HTTPs" prefix in the address bar of their

  How it Works:
  A SSL Wildcard certificate ensures secure, effortless, and convenient Internet
shopping. Once an Internet user enters a secure area - by entering credit card
information, email address, or other personal data, for example - the shopping site's
SSL certificate enables the browser and web server to build a secure, encrypted
connection. The SSL "handshake" process, which establishes the secure session, takes
place unnoticeably behind the scene without interrupting the consumer's shopping
  By contrast, if a user attempts to submit personal information to an unsecured
website, a site that is not protected with a valid SSL certificate, the browser's built-in
security mechanism triggers a warning to the user, reminding him/her that the site is
not secured and that sensitive data might be intercepted by third parties.
