The very first thing your customers see when they visit your site is the status of your SSL certificate. It’s right up there next to your URL in the form of a lock icon. A closed lock indicates that the transfer of data is encrypted and secure.
We can’t overstate this: If you’re receiving sensitive information – addresses, credit cards, whatever – you need an SSL.
You can get a Domain-Validated SSL applied directly to your Media Temple service. This type of SSL is a straightforward and widely popular option, balancing robust capabilities and easy implementation. Your site benefits from:
Google ranking boost
SHA-2 hashing algorithm with 2048-bit encryption
Unlimited server coverage
Padlock icon and https:// prefix for your visitors
