Do I need special web hosting for my online shop?

For online shops, we recommend that you opt for SSL web hosting.  SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer and essentially creates a secure connection between the browser and the server and means that any sensitive information is encrypted. Your website visitors will gain confidence in knowing they are visiting a secure website. When SSL Web Hosting is in place a small padlock will feature on the address bar.

SSL Web Hosting is particularly important for online shops because customers will be more willing to pay money to a seller who takes security seriously.

SSL Web Hosting is available from Pedleyonline. Please see more about our Web Hosting packages here.
