Is My Uscreen Storefront Secure?

Learn more about SSL

Updated over a week ago

Your default storefront URL is secured by SSL, and customers checking out on your store are subject to the same securities they would have when logging into their bank.

In the digital age, where data security is paramount, SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificates play a crucial role in safeguarding information online. At Uscreen, we understand the importance of security, especially when it comes to hosting content and engaging with your audience. That’s why we provide a complimentary SSL certificate for every domain added to Uscreen, ensuring your online presence is not just powerful, but also protected.

If you choose to use a Custom Domain you may need to wait up to 48 hours before your SSL certificate is installed by our support team.

What is SSL?

SSL is a standard security technology that establishes an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data transferred between the web server and browsers remains private and integral.

How Does SSL Work?

SSL works by using a cryptographic system that uses two keys to encrypt data:

  1. Public Key: Known to everyone and used to encrypt information.

  2. Private Key: Known only to the recipient of the message and used to decrypt information.

When you install an SSL certificate on your web server, you can access your website through HTTPS instead of HTTP. The 'S' at the end of HTTPS stands for 'secure', indicating that all communications between your browser and the website are encrypted and secure.

Benefits of SSL

  1. Enhanced Security: SSL protects sensitive data transmitted from and to your website, such as login details, signups, addresses, and payment or personal information.

  2. Boost in Customer Trust: A visible padlock icon and HTTPS in your website’s address signal to your visitors that their data is protected, building trust and credibility.

  3. Improved SEO Ranking: Search engines favor HTTPS websites. An SSL certificate can, therefore, boost your site’s search engine ranking.

  4. Compliance with Regulations: SSL certificates help in complying with privacy laws and regulations by securing data transmission.
