What is an SSL
One of the most important components of online business is creating a trusted environment where potential customers feel confident in making purchases. SSL certificates create a foundation of trust by establishing a secure connection. To ensure visitors their connection is secure, browsers provide visual cues, such as a lock icon or a green bar.
To be able to create an SSL connection a web server requires an SSL Certificate. When you choose to activate SSL on your web server you will be prompted to complete a number of questions about the identity of your website and your company. Your web server then creates two cryptographic keys - a Private Key and a Public Key.
Tls (transport layer security)
Transport layer security are cryptographic protocols designed to provide communications security over a computer network. Several versions of the protocols find widespread use in applications such as web browsing, email, instant messaging, and voice over IP (VoIP). Websites can use TLS to secure all communications between their servers and web browsers.
The connection is private (or secure) because symmetric cryptography is used to encrypt the data transmitted. The keys for this symmetric encryption are generated uniquely for each connection and are based on a shared secret that was negotiated at the start of the session.
The server and client negotiate the details of which encryption algorithm and cryptographic keys to use before the first byte of data is transmitted.
Protect & secure your connection
When you use a public WiFi connection (for example at Starbucks or the airport), all your browsing activities when connected to a hotspot can be monitored or spied on. This allows that the person sitting next to you can read your communication easily. The worst thing is it's easy for hackers to create two Wi-Fi Hotspots, which might confuse you if it's connected to the original hotspot but in reality it's a trap.
When connected to public WiFi, unsafe WiFi, all your data including the most sensitive data such as credit card information can be very easily stolen by hackers. With the power and quality grade encryption, a VPN protects and secures your browsing sessions and keeps data from snoopers and hackers.
Cloud Server Definition
A cloud server is a sensible server that is constructed, facilitated and conveyed through a distributed computing stage over the Internet. Cloud servers have and display comparative abilities and usefulness to an ordinary server however are gotten to remotely from a cloud specialist organization. A cloud server may likewise be known as a virtual server or virtual private disjoin.
A cloud server is principally an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) based cloud benefit display. There are two sorts of cloud server: coherent and physical. A cloud server is thought to be legitimate when it is conveyed through server virtualization. In this conveyance demonstrate, the physical server is sensibly circulated into at least two coherent servers, each of which has a different OS, UI and applications, in spite of the fact that they share physical parts from the basic physical server.
Though the physical cloud server is additionally gotten to through the Internet remotely, it isnt shared or dispersed. This is usually known as a devoted cloud server.
