SSL certificate for your domain
By using a "128-Bit SSL certificate", you make sure that all your data are sent encrypted from your Web site to the Web browsers of your visitors.
An own certificate makes sense, particularly if you need to secure sensitive areas of your domain, for example shopping cart or billing applications.
Hosting at Genotec encompasses already the
joint use of the Genotec certificate for ".genotec.ch" URLs.

You would never send a letter in a transparent envelope because everybody could read its content. The same applies to data which are transmitted electronically. Everybody which some basic knowledge in the field can read them... except if you use an SSL certificate.
On the following page you can learn what such
a certificate is exactly and how it works!

Now it will become somewhat more technical, but not absolutely incomprehensible.
Just imagine you get an envelope without return address but with a form where to insert your bank details. Every SSL certificate is issued for a particular server within a particular domain for a verified company. Still interested?
