123-reg and GlobalSign secure online businesses with latest SSL range

May 29, 2009; 04:22 AM


123-reg, the largest UK domain registrar, has partnered with Certification Authority and security provider, GlobalSign, to offer a new range of SSL Certificate products. 86 per cent of savvy online shoppers now look for the secure padlock icon or coveted green web address bar on a website before proceeding with a purchase*. The new range from 123-reg makes it easy for online businesses to obtain, install and activate SSL security for use on their purchasing, checkout and login pages.
123-reg’s SSL Certificates start from just £5.99 per year. This covers the customer for five years. The certificate encrypts data transmitted over the internet by online merchants. This includes payment transactions, web account logins, network traffic and other online services requiring high levels of authentication and confidentiality. With internet security scares making regular headlines, online shoppers are becoming ever more security-savvy. They increasingly look for the signs of a secure website. To satisfy consumer concerns and ensure safe online transactions, the 123-reg SSL packages range from entry-level websites (for single users) to comprehensive security options for SMBs and large enterprises with multiple websites.
123-reg’s Extended Validation range activates the highly respected green address bar in browsers. This shows customers that the website has gone through the top level of vetting and therefore provides the highest degree of trust. The Domain Validated range offers unparalleled speed of issuance, allowing delivery of SSL Certificates in only minutes. All of the SSL Certificates are compatible with 99.9 per cent of web browsers, ensuring the highest level of compatibility for customers.
Businesses with more than one server, that would traditionally have to pay for individual licenses, can also take advantage of GlobalSign’s ‘three for the price of one’ licensing. This allows primary servers and backup servers to be secured using the same SSL Certificate – at no additional cost.
Thomas Vollrath, Managing Director at 123-reg, explains, “We have partnered with GlobalSign, an established international Certificate Authority, to offer the most feature packed and cost effective SSL security options to our customers. Given how security conscious online shoppers have become, businesses must now provide the reassurances that help convert visitors into customers and aim to reduce the amount of shopping cart abandonment due to security concerns. The 123-reg SSL range now helps our customers achieve this.”
Paul Tourret, Managing Director at GlobalSign, comments, “We are very pleased to see that 123-reg and the Webfusion Group hold customer security in such high regard. Partnering with GlobalSign SSL means the Group can provide the highest grade SSL security and continue to offer a trusted service to their customers.”
The SSL range is immediately available through 123-reg and other members of the Webfusion Group, including Webfusion UK and Donhost.
