Moving forward, the new generation of Voices.com will not only be equipped with VeriSign Security, but also an SSL Certificate.
Now folks, that's some heavy duty security and peace of mind.
But, just what is SSL? Find out here!
While many of you are familiar with the VeriSign Secure seal that you see on our website, the term SSL may be new to you.
What does SSL mean?
Definition of SSL: A security protocol that provides communication privacy.
The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a commonly-used protocol for managing the security of a message transmission over the Internet.
Secure Sockets Layer protocol is a method of passing sensitive information, such as credit card details, over the Internet. All communication is encrypted to prevent eavesdropping. An SSL URL is preceded by https:// instead of http://.
You might recognize the https:// from banking websites you may use. As mentioned before, the https:// signifies greater security and encryption.
Here's a picture of what the Voices.com website will look like with the new SSL certificate.
Along with the new SSL certificate, we'll have a VeriSign Securedâ„¢ Seal.
The VeriSign Secured Seal is the number one sign of trust on the Internet. Recognized worldwide, the VeriSign Secured Seal appears on Web pages secured by VeriSign SSL Certificates as a dynamic, animated graphic. Site visitors can click on the seal to verify website information in real time.
The next generation of Voices.com is coming soon, so keep your eyes out for it!
