Server Bizhand.Com is able to set up a secure
server for those clients needing this service. A secure
server is one that is verified by an outside authority and assures
your customers that your Web site is authentic and that all transactions
are secured by SSL encryption. Like domain names the internet
has several businesses which provide this service for clients. Bizhand.Com
uses Verisign. And, like domain names, a secure certificate
issued by one of these businesses is not something you own but
something you use and renew each year.
Prices range from
$249 - $1495 annually, depending on your needs. If your site
is involved in e-commerce to any degree this is one of the parts

all the scenarios and suggest the most cost effective one for your
secure server allows you to verify your business to site visitors
(when they click on the site seal) and have the padlock displayed

the same thing).
Generally speaking, sites that are secure are involved in some
level of e-commerce on an ongoing basis.
