Hosting ToolboxBoston, MA – GlobalSign, one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA), and specialists in SSL security, today announced that it has shown the largest actual increase in the number of SSL Certificates active for the month of February. Enjoying a monthly growth of almost 2000 new secure sites, GlobalSign’s highly trusted SSL technology is being adopted at a faster rate than the other leading SSL Providers Symantec (comprising of its four SSL brands – VeriSign, GeoTrust, thawte and RapidSSL), as well as GoDaddy and Comodo, who all showed a decrease in number of secured sites for the same period.

Between 2008 and 2009 the number of sites secured by GlobalSign more than doubled and subsequent years have seen strong growth rates of 64% and 59% respectively – higher than other major players. These statistics clearly indicate that rising numbers of website owners are realizing the importance of using SSL technology, and that more existing certificate users are deciding to switch from their current vendor to take advantage of GlobalSign’s trusted brand, future-proof SSL security and advanced security features.

December 14, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Web Hosting ServicesJersey City, NJ – Comodo offers a free Domain Name Service (DNS) for Internet users. The advantages to using Comodo’s secure DNS include security, speed, and ease of use.

A DNS is like a phonebook for a computer.

A DNS works the same way; when a person types a website address such as, into a browser’s search bar, the computer contacts a Domain Name Server. The DNS identifies the IP address that corresponds to the domain name, like a telephone user looking up a telephone number in the directory. The DNS server then replies to the user’s browser, informing it of the IP address, and the browser duly connects.
