What Is Phishing?
Phishing is fraudulent behavior that involves trying to get information from you, often posing as a company or product.
Have you ever heard of an SSL and wondered what it’s for? You’ve heard that your website might need one, but googling it only returns overcomplicated graphs, encryption algorithms and mile long articles. The information out there is so boring it’s easy to give up and switch back to watching tiny hamsters eating burritos.
However, there’s an easy way to learn about SSL that we know you’ll love…
Imagine you’re on a bus having a conversation about your sensitive financial data with your bank account manager, or chatting about personal details with a friend. Everything you say can easily be heard by anyone around you. This is how the Internet would look like without SSLs – it’s like you’re saying your bank account number, passwords, or secret love confessions out loud for all to hear. Sounds terrifying, right? An SSL certificate, in this context, would allow you to speak a language that can be understood only by you and the party to which you’re speaking. To the other “passengers” around you, however, it would sound like a white noise.
Wildcard SSLs secure an unlimited amount of subdomains along with a domain name.This means that once you obtain the certificate, you are able to secure all one-level subdomains with the same certificate file.
