SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a protocol that shields your online storefront or logon page. The Secure Sockets Layer certificates, also known as digital certificates, encrypt the delicate data required from web site visitors such as physical address, birth date, national identification number, driver's licence or bank account details, so that no one could use these details for illegal purposes.

Your web site guests can identify a secure site by the ‘https' part at the beginning of the web site address, or by the lock icon in the web browser window, or by a distinctive seal on the web site.

The certificates offer 256-bit encryption, and include a 10 000 US dollar warranty and a static site seal for your site. You need to have a dedicated IP.

So, register for a web hosting package with with Hermes Host straight away and get a SSL certificate for your domain name.
