The Importance of SSL on Websites that Sell Domain Names

SSL for Domain Resellers

If there is one thing an Internet entrepreneur should take extremely seriously its security. This is where Secure Socket Layer (SSL) on websites plays a major role. Online theft is prevalent, and who knows what future security breaches are possible if domain resellers and their clients do not take extra precautions.

Anything that involves data transfer is susceptible to online theft. It is highly recommended on websites that sell domain names to implement SSL to secure servers when processing customer data and credit card payments.

The purpose of SSL is to provide an encrypted link between the server and web browser when customers are purchasing products or services. This technology ensures that the data exchange between two servers cannot be read nor deciphered by hackers who may attempt to tap between the web browser and remote server.

Star Wars Domains

A new Star Wars video game called Star Wars: First Assault may be on the cards after various blogs reported that LucasFilms had begun buying up related domain names including StarWarsFirstAssault.com and StarWarsFA.com. At least 11 others may also have been purchased by the iconic production company which helped launch a new generation of special effects which influenced many others, include James Cameron who made Avatar 3D.

According to the blog, Geek.com, most of the URLs are not yet branded with content or graphics, loading empty blank pages.

According to Fusible.com, no trademarks have yet been filed at the United States patent and Trademark Office. Further, LucasFilms has made no official announcement about the launch date of the game or its application development.

Domain names, along with trademarks and copyrights, are considered essential tools in establishing a new business or launching new product lines. Domain Resellers can leverage endless marketing opportunities across a range of businesses to generate extra income from individual or bulk domain purchases.

An integrated back office and administration panel on the Resell.Biz platform allows a domain reseller to organize and optimize a range of services and products for clients who sign up for new domains.

Domain resellers can also leverage full white label services on the Resell.Biz platform, including launching a fully hosted domain shop in less than a few minutes.

Upon completing a domain reseller application, resellers can take advantage of privacy protection, domain forwarding and mail forwarding, managed DNS, domain theft protection. Plus, control and bulk management tools are also available.

The Resell.biz platform also includes an extensive API which allows a domain reseller to seamlessly integrate features and services into an existing online branded asset.
