Secure Certificates

In order to ensure that personal data (including credit cards) entered by your customers is kept private, data should be automatically encrypted between the Web server and the customer’s Web browser. In order to implement this secure link you must purchase a Secure Certificate. Secure Certificates are necessary for the security of all your online data transmission requirements.

The certificate is not only used by the Web server and browser to establish the secure connection, it also identifies that the certificate (and domain name) is owned by you, and that the store is therefore genuinely operated by you– it demonstrates that your on-line identity has not been stolen by anyone else.

Fish.Net is an official 'registered Thawte ISP partner' providing websites with a high level of security. We will help you obtain the appropriate Secure Certificate and liaise as required with the certificate issuing authorities.

Secure Sockets Layer is a technology for managing the security of online message transmission. SSL encryption ensures that the information is safe. All digital certificates come with SSL. SSL encrypts or scrambles any information sent from your browser to the server you are connected to, making it impossible to intercept or tamper with the information on the way.

If you see the padlock in the bottom right-hand corner of your browser you know that SSL encryption is in place and that information being sent from this page is safe. The big problem is that you do not know who is on the other side receiving your information. The only way this can be verified is through an authenticated web server certificate such as Thawte.
