Domains.co.za is helping to make the Internet a more secure environment in which to conduct business, pursue leisure activities and socialise with the launch of Secure Socket Layers (SSL) certificates at R25.month including installation.

By creating a secure connection between the user’s computer and the server that a particular website is hosted on, potential customers receive peace of mind.
“For the price of a good coffee, website owners who are also hosting with us can enjoy the added peace of mind that comes with knowing that communications between web users and their website, is securely encrypted to increase online privacy and minimize online eavesdropping and man-in-the-middle attacks,” said Wayne Diamond, MD of Domains.co.za.
