- Ordering Online Can Be One Of The Safest Ways To Use Your Credit Card
Using your credit card on the internet is a
relatively new way of electronic shopping and some people worry about the safety of using their credit card numbers on the Internet. But most of this worry is unfounded! Placing orders with
a credit card over the Web, especially on a secure shopping site such as ours which uses a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), which encrypts all your personal, billing and credit card information; is probably one of the safest ways you can use your credit card to shop.
- Concerns About Entering Your Credit Card Online
At Ushostmaster.com we offer secure credit card processing to our customers for the convenience and superior safety that it offers. Our customers, and the safety of their
information, are of prime importance to us and we would never endorse or use a risky payment method nor will your personal information be used for outside mailing lists or for any other non-authorized use for that matter. We want you to feel absolutely comfortable ordering from us, whatever payment method you choose!
- Online Exposure Of Your Credit Card Number
Using the Internet to order by credit card never exposes your number through discarded credit card receipts or carbon copies. Your credit card never leaves your possession so you're in control of who has access to your credit card number at all times. When you do order on our secure ordering page, all of your information is encrypted into data using public encrypted keys. Anyone tampering with this encoded information would only receive randomized characters and numbers which would make no sense to them. It is Ushostmaster's policy that your credit card information will never be transmitted back to you un securely.
- Know Whether Or Not The Information That You Are Sending Is Secure - Explorer Users
Internet Explorer Users will notice a small pad lock in the lower right hand corner of their web browser window. If the pad lock is "locked" then your transmissions are encrypted and secure. If the pad lock is open the transmission is not secure and that means that you are either using a browser or browser version which does not support SSL and secure transactions or you are on a page which is not secure.
- Know Whether Or Not The Information That You Are Sending Is Secure - Netscape Users
Netscape Users will notice a small key in the lower left hand corner of their web browser window. If the key is "solid" then your transmissions are encrypted and secure. If the key is broken or not solid then the transmission is not secure and that means that you are either using a browser or browser version which does not support SSL and secure transactions or you are on a page which is not secure.
- Why Doesn't Every Shopping Site On The WWW Have A Secure Ordering Page
Some sites do not want to use secure forms while others cannot have the capability. If all of the forms on the internet had to be secure then all of them would take longer to download since a secure ordering page takes a slightly longer period of time to download into your browser. In the interest of providing a secure web site's users with timely downloading and faster web page access, secure shopping sites generally don't secure pages which don't transmit anything as vital as credit card information as it's not only unnecessary, it would make people wait longer to browse a web site.
- Tell Me More About Security And Online Encryption
Secure Sockets uses what's known as "Public-Key Encryption" to exchange a "session key" between the you and the server. A session key is used to encrypt your transaction (both when you send it and when it is received), and each transmission uses a different session key. So no two transmissions are alike and none will have the same session key twice (encrypted in the same way).
