SSL ( Secure Sockets Layer ) is a network protocol which allows secure data transmitting. Instead of the usual HTTP connection, a HTTPS connection is created.
Any connection with HTTPS is marked by browsers as secure. If you open your subdomain to your shop with us, this connection will always be displayed as SSL secured and thus will route to an HTTPS page.
Advantages of SSL secured connections:
- Connections to your shop are established with a secure protocol. This is also displayed to your customers.
- Through this, you create trust with your customers, as all entered details and data are transmitted securely.
If you have a domain that is routing to our subdomain entered with us, you should ensure correct setup of your DNS forwarding. This can be done through your provider. A general guide on the required details can be found here.
