http://www.BestSSLCertificates.com announces the top 3 SSL certificate providers for 2011. BestSSLCertificates is a website that was created by Internet experts in an effort to provide detailed information on Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates, what they are, why an SSL certificate is needed, and to share reviews of some of the best SSL certificate providers to webmasters everywhere. Any business website that will be collecting sensitive information that needs to be kept secure will want to learn more about SSL and how it can keep private information safe.
SSL serves to main purposes, to protect confidential information that is be transferred to or from a website, such as a social security number or credit card number, and to provide authentication of a website, ensuring visitors that they are doing business with a real, legitimate business. Website visitors can tell if a business is using SSL by the “s” at the end of the http in a website address or by the locked padlock symbol and entire address bar turning green if the website is using a premium SSL certificate. The top 3 SSL certificate providers recognized by BestSSLCertificates are: GoDaddy, Dotster, and Network Solutions.
GoDaddy has been known for their domain name registration services and web hosting services for many years but webmasters may not realize that they also have some of the best SSL Certificates on the market. GoDaddy SSL Certificates are offered much cheaper than the prices found at most of their competitors. These certificates are unique in the fact that the GoDaddy SSL Certificates provide unlimited usage where many certificate authorities require a new license for each server. GoDaddy boasts a 99.9% browser recognition rate, indicating that their SSL certificates will work with virtually any web browser, and GoDaddy provides 24/7 service and support to answer any questions that may arise.
Dotster SSL Certificates are provided in conjunction with Thawte SSL or GeoTrust Certificates. Dotster SSL certificates provide three levels of security to choose from. With Thawte SSL certificates every webmaster choosing one of these SSL certificates will receive a seal to display on their websites showing visitors that the website is secure. In addition Dotster offers premium certificates through GeoTrust for those websites that need higher encryption rates and more visible signs of their authority, like the padlock or green address bar.
Network Solutions also provides a number of SSL certificates for wembasters to choose from. Depending on the traffic and amount of secure data that is being transferred to and from the website, as well as how visible the website wants their security to be to visitors, can all help determine which SSL Certificate is right for a business website. Some of the best web hosting service providers offer shared SSL certificates for free but this type of SSL provides very limited security and company authentication. For a business website that will be transmitting a lot of secure information, purchasing a private SSL certificate is highly recommended.
