Some Terms Used in Websites Design and Management

SSL Certificate 

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer and, in short, it’s the standard technology for keeping an internet connection secure and safeguarding any sensitive data that is being sent between two systems, preventing criminals from reading and modifying any information transferred, including potential personal details. It adds this little padlock icon to your website link, showing that the website is secured.

Without the padlock icon, any information, (eg, Card Details) entered into the website can be hijacked by hackers.

CMS

CMS stands for “content management system”. It is a software application that enables users to create, edit, collaborate on, publish and store digital content. With CMS enabled, you can edit or publish on your website, after it’s created.

Footer Credit

Footer credit is the little line of text at the end of each web page showing the designers of the website. Because the web designer owns the intellectual right to the website design, she is accorded the little space. Eg of footer credit below
