Why SSL Certificate is important to you?
Secure connection to web servers with SSL certificates
Establish a secure connection between your web server and your visitors’ browser with an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate. Data transmitted is thus protected against eavesdropping, tampering, or forgery, making it safe to communicate all types of data.
You know a connection between a client and your server is secured SSL technology when you see a padlock icon or a green address bar in your browser.
When to use SSL certificates?
Using an SSL certificate protects your and your customers’ sensitive information. It prevents third parties from snooping the transmitted data.
On the Internet information is passed from computer to computer to get to the destination server. Any computer in between you and the server can see your credit card numbers, usernames and passwords, and other sensitive information if it is not encrypted with an SSL certificate.
In addition to encryption, a proper SSL certificate also provides authentication. This means you can be sure that you are sending information to the right server and not to a third party’s server.

Frequently asked questions
Below we’ve provided a bit about SSL Certificate. If you have any other questions, please get in touch using our hotline or whatsapp.
What is SSL? What is TLS?
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) and it’s successor TLS (Transport Layer Security) are methods used to secure and encrypt sensitive information like credit cards, usernames, passwords, and other private data sent over the Internet.
Website pages secured with SSL and TLS are those branded with the HTTPS in their URL address.
Who needs an SSL Certificate?
Anything (including people, software, computers, and devices) who exchange sensitive information on any network, including the Internet and Web, needs to use SSL/TLS. Sensitive information includes things like username and passwords, credit card numbers, or any other data that needs to be kept private.
What is a Wildcard SSL/TLS certificate?
Wildcard SSL/TLS allows the use of an unlimited number of subdomains in the SSL/TLS certificate. Any full domain that matches *.yourdomain.com (where * can be any word and yourdomain.com is your domain) will be secured by a wildcard SSL digital certificate. For instance, egypttrust.com, www.egypttrust.com, mail.egypttrust.com, and any other combination of egypttrust.com would be secured by a wildcard certificate issued to *.egypttrust.com.
How does the warranty work?
The warranty protects the end user if an egypttrust.com Certificate is mis-issued (i.e. issued to a third party that was not entitled to the SSL Certificate).
What is the difference between HTTP and HTTPS?
The S in "HTTPS" stands for "secure." HTTPS is just HTTP with SSL/TLS.
A website with an HTTPS address has a legitimate SSL certificate issued by a certificate authority, and traffic to and from that website is authenticated and encrypted with the SSL/TLS protocol.
To encourage the Internet as a whole to move to the more secure HTTPS, many web browsers have started to mark HTTP websites as "not secure" or "unsafe." Thus, not only is HTTPS essential for keeping users safe and user data secure, it has also become essential for building trust with users.
How does a website get an SSL certificate?
Website owners need to obtain an SSL certificate from a certificate authority, and then install it on their web server (often a web host can handle this process).
A certificate authority is an outside party who can confirm that the website owner is who they say they are.
They keep a copy of the certificates they issue.
How does SSL Certificates work?
A browser or server attempts to connect to a website (i.e. a web server) secured with SSL. The browser/server requests that the web server identify itself.
The web server sends the browser/server a copy of its SSL certificate.
The browser/server checks to see whether or not it trusts the SSL certificate. If so, it sends a message to the web server.
The web server sends back a digitally signed acknowledgement to start an SSL encrypted session.
Encrypted data is shared between the browser/server and the web server.
