All successful stories behind e-commerce sites being hacked if went through investigation, the main perpetrator in most cases would be none other than our beloved HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol). HTTP is a familiar word to most of us internet users. One who surfs internet on a regular basis must have stumbled upon this specific word. HTTP, which is an abbreviation for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol, implies to an application protocol for distributed, collaborative, hypermedia information systems. It is used to pass information back and forth between web servers and clients. However, HTTP is considered highly unsafe in regard to security matters and data vulnerability. On using HTTP, a website generally communicates with our browser using the regular 'unsecure' mechanism, thereby, making it possible for someone to SPY on our computer’s information. Therefore, no matter how impressive a website one runs, if it lacks security essentials, no one will ever care to use his/her service. The question of trust is always predominant among internet users when it comes to sharing confidential and sensitive information. In simple terms, you won’t provide your credit card details unless you feel assured that the gateway is safe.

That's why we need to prove that our e-commerce site is 100% secure - and HTTPS does just that. When the web address begins with https:// (S implies to secure), the computer communicates with the web server in a secure code, making it difficult for intruders to snoop on the private information. HTTPS is a combination of HTTP with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)/ Transport Layer Security (TLS) which are cryptographic protocols that provide communication security over the Internet. It ensures that all sensitive, personal and financial information on websites are secured and intact. AspxCommerce, a B2B (Business-to-Business) and B2C (Business-to-Consumer) standard e-commerce solution, knows how important such e-commerce business models are.
