What is shared SSL?

Secure Socket Layer (SSL) allows a secure communication channel to be set up between the server and your customer's browser. Once this connection has been made, information, like credit card numbers, can be exchanged with no chance of a third party intercepting the data.

With Shared SSL your site will be accessed securely via our secure server, the secure URL for your site will be similar to https://vault5.controlssl.co.uk/yourdomain-com. The encryption and technical security of Shared SSL is identical to that used by Personal SSL; however it does not offer assurance of your organisations legitimacy as Personal SSL does.
