Your web site visitors can recognize a secure website by the ‘https' component at the beginning of the website address, or by the locked padlock symbol in the web browser window, or by a special seal on the site.

The certificates feature 256-bit encryption, and include a 10 000 dollar warranty and a static site seal for your website. You need to have a dedicated IP address.
