FREE SSL secure Web hosting - while offer lasts
If you have purchased a domain name with us and have set up your Web site,
you should consider using SSL to secure your site if you intend to
conduct e-commerce transactions or provide your visitors a means of
getting secured viewing channel. If you are accepting your customers'
credit card information through your Web site, you are also accepting
the responsibility for the security of that information -- in this case,
you must use SSL to protect this information.
The standard industry protocol for securing Web sites is called
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSL provides data encryption, server

Small Yellow Lock
When a Website is protected by SSL, users will see a
small yellow lock on the bottom of their browsers.
