Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Website Design

Can you explain SSL?

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a protocol for transmitting private or sensitive information over the Internet. SSL works by using private `keys` to encrypt data that's transferred and another key is used to un-encrypt it at the destination so that anyone intercepting the information won`t undertstand it.

Website addresses that require an SSL connection start with https: instead of http:. You should never enter credit card numbers into a website that doesn`t start https://
