Green padlock

Here at OnTarget we can help you secure your website by installing a SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificate on your website giving you a green padlock in the browser.

This will encrypt all data entered into your website including sensitive data such as passwords and credit car details.

what else do i need?

It is also essential to have your website on a dedicated IP address - this gives your website its own unique identity - needed to verify the Secure Certificate

how can a SSL certificate HTTPS green padlock be installed?

We provide a one stop shop service for website security including

  1. Migration of the website onto a dedicated ip address
  2. Purchase of the SSL cert and generating the Certificate Signing Request
  3. Setup of the necessary email address to verify the domain and certificate (e.g did you know you can only send the cert to certain types of email address?)
  4. Installation of the certificate
  5. Setup of the website to ensure it only loads with https for both admin and user interfaces
