What is an SSL certificate
Posted on 23/05/2007 in eCommerce

We had fun a few weeks ago installing an SSL certificate on a client’s ecommerce site. Firstly, if you are not sure what an SSL certificate is – have a look here. Basically, it verifies that the website is legitimate and encrypts data sent from the site (such as your credit card details). Secondly, how much do they cost? Well, eWay recommends a company that sells the basic SSL certificate for AUD$89.95. But, I used GoDaddy which offered an SSL certificate (with slightly higher specs than the aforementioned one) for US$19.95 per year (with a 10% discount if you buy 2 years or more). That is a little more affordable and, it works a treat!
