Secure SSL Certificates

Secure SSL Certificates are used to secure and encrypt online business transactions, reducing fraud and crime associated with E-commerce. SSL Certificates are also employed to verify that the website you are visiting is the true website of the company you wish to do business with

The cost and ease of obtaining an SSL Certificate normally depends on the level of encryption and trust provided as well as the level of warranty offered by the certification body. Low cost and low level certificates can also normally be issued in minutes as they don’t require the same level of identity verification as more expensive solutions that offer better trust levels. However, if you run a website with only a few transactions per month, then you do not really need to pay thousands for an SSL Certificate. The SSL Certificates listed below are therefore ideal for most websites

Where do I start?

I want an Email Address or a Website

You will need all of these:

  1. A Domain Name. A domain name is like a street address so emails and website visitors will know where to go, and you will need to renew and pay for it every year.
  2. A Hosting Package. You will also need to subscribe to a Hosting Package which you will pay for monthly or yearly. This is like a rental space that exists to provide all services like email and website, using the domain name you own.
  3. Order and Pay. To order both hosting and domain name, go to estart.co.za, choose a hosting package with the functionality you need, and click on the “Sign Up Now” button. It will then ask you for the domain name you want to use and you can search for available domains using this form
