What is an SSL Certificate?

Last modified: Tuesday November 28th, 2023

Have you ever seen the error “There is a problem with this website’s security certificate” but don’t know what it means?

Internet security is quite complex, so this article only provides a simple overview of the topic for non-technical readers and tips on what to do when you encounter security bugs.

Why Security Certificates Matter

When visiting a website where you need to log in and manage an account, it is important that your account details remain between you and your service provider to keep your money, identity, and personal information safe. The online service provider can be your bank, online store or e-commerce website, PayPal, email, or personal blog.

When accessing such websites, you will notice that the URL starts with a lock icon and with “https://” instead of just “http://”.

HTTPS (HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure) means that the website is secured with Secure Socket Layer/Transport Layer Security. The data transmitted between you and the website is encrypted so the information is kept private and the website is identified as who it claims to be. In the same way that you verify your identity (with a username and password and other information they may ask for, such as two-factor authentication), the website must also do this. With the lock symbol, your internet browser indicates that the site you are visiting is legitimate and that the website is operated by its true owners.

Understanding the importance and necessity of data protection, therefore we offer certificates at the most affordable prices. You can buy a Certificate not only to protect any server or hosting provided by Beehosting but also for any other services/servers you use from other providers.
It only takes one click to set up SSL if you have a BeeHosting hosting account. No technical skills are required. Google loves HTTPS-encrypted websites and will promote them higher in search results. So SSL Certificates from BeeHosting not only protect your customers but also helps you find more of them.
