What is SSL?

Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is a protocol developed by Netscape in 1996 which quickly became the method of choice for securing data transmissions across the Internet. SSL is an integral part of most web browsers and web servers and makes use of the public and private key encryption algorithm developed in 1977 by Ron Rivest, Adi Shamir and Leonard Adelman (RSA). 

The beauty of a thawte SSL123 Certificate is that when you access our web server through an SSL connection, the information transmitted between our secured web server and your  browser is encrypted. This ensures you information is securely transmitted to and from your website.
