SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. It provides a secure connection between internet browsers and websites, allowing you to transmit private data online.
To ensure you the safest possible browsing experience at Tierra Hosting, we've implemented SSL. It ensures the connection between your browser and our website is encrypted to prevent eavesdropping.
When a domain has been verified, it means that the people who are running the site have bought a certificate proving that they own the domain and it is not being spoofed. For example, Tierra Hosting has this sort of certificate and an encrypted connection, so the Site Identity Button displays a gray padlock. When you click on the padlock, it tells you that you are actually connected to tierrahosting.com as certified by Comodo CA Ltd. It also assures you that the connection is encrypted so no one can eavesdrop on the connection and steal your Tierra Hosting login information that way.
Just another way we demonstrate that we value you and your online security.
