It is neccessary often to encrypt the communication between the user and the server, especially when sensible data (e.g. payment data) are being transferred. This is made possible through ssl certificates that are being installed on the server. These are available for different types of usage: So for example you can secure your email traffic or HTTP/VPN connections to make sure that your data is being transferred securely.
Our ssl certificate offers will be available soon.
