Tips on SSL Certificate Encryption
1. Activate SSL padlock
The SSL padlock is a lock icon that appears on the browser if the user is accessing a secure website that has SSL Certificate encryption installed. This brown color lock will appear just at the right corner of the address bar. It also shows that the SSL certificate is verified and original. With the padlock active, customers are always satisfied that their information is safe and will be securely transmitted.
Click the padlock to view information about the certificate.
2. Display Secure Site Seal
Every secure website protected by SSL Certificate Encryption gets a secure site seal, which users can use to verify the authenticity of the website. You should always use a secure site seal on the homepage or every page of your website that is secure and includes “https:" in the address bar. You should also include a page where you define the benefits of SSL Certificate Encryption.
It has been noticed that people tend to react more quickly to security seals and other security stuff.
3. Use SSL Certificate Encryption on every page that submits data.
You must use SSL encryption on every that page that involves submission of data and not just pages that are use to submit credit card or other financial information. This will ensure that your customer’s data is safe and will not be compromised. Also, your website will be more secure from hackers.
4. Go for Extended SSL Validation
Extended SSL validation is a new standard that ensures maximum or extended security with SSL. Also, the users are highly satisfied when dealing with such websites. With extended SSL validation, the address bar turns Green, a padlock appears and an https is before the url. Customers are always looking for a green address bar, and it’s time to turn this customers into paying customers by showing them the highest level of trust and security.
5. Always update your server software
This is less towards customer satisfaction and more towards your website’s safety. Always update your server software and application to ensure maximum safety from upcoming and new threats. Vulnerabilities continue to grow with technology and time.
