Secure Socket Layer (SSL)
SSL is an abbreviation for "Secure Sockets Layer". SSL is a transaction security standard that provides data encryption, server authentication, and message integrity. SSL is usually used on sites that accept credit card numbers or other private information.
NOTE: All 1Click4Help hosting packages can use the shared SSL certificate of our award winning web hosting service provider for custom scripts and securing sensitive data. If your business is still growing and you're not ready to establish a merchant account we also have a cost effective and secured third-party payment method that works well with our shopping cart software. Visitors to your website can safely shop using credit cards and you pay the P2P (person-to-person) payment service a small fee only when an online purchase has been made.
If you are planning on using SSL with Miva Merchant shopping cart software this will require a Hosting Package 3 or above to support it. Regardless of which plan you chose if it's not perfect for you, or your business outgrowns it, upgrading is easy.
