How to get a secure https: prefix address for your website

Some browsers have recently changed their security settings so that sites without an https: prefix, may produce a warning that the site is not secure.

Worldprofit has a solution for website and business owners.

Worldprofit now offers:

Domain Validation (DV) SSL Certificates for Worldprofit hosted websites.

What is a (DV) SSL Certificate?

SSL Certificates are small data files that digitally bind a cryptographic key to an organization’s details. When installed on a web server, it activates the padlock and the https protocol and allows secure connections from a web server to a browser. Typically, SSL is used to secure credit card transactions, data transfer and logins, and more recently is becoming the norm when securing browsing of social media and business sites.

SSL Certificates bind together:

  • A domain name, server name or hostname.
  • An organizational identity (i.e. company name) and location.

Once the SSL Certificate is installed it’s used by the web server to initiate a secure session with browsers. Once a secure connection is established, all web traffic between the web server and the web browser will be secure.

When a certificate is successfully installed, the application protocol (also known as HTTP) will change to HTTPs, where the ‘S’ stands for ‘secure’. Depending on the type of certificate and what browser you are using to surf the internet, a browser will show a padlock or green bar in the browser when you visit a website that has an SSL Certificate installed.

A (DV) SSL Certificate may appear different for each internet browser.
