256-bit enabled SSL.
SSL is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, a widely used technology that creates an encrypted connection between the Web server that houses the Heirloom Registry and our visitors' web browsers. It allows for private information to be transmitted without the problems of eavesdropping, data tampering, or message forgery. The use of an SSL certificate on a website is usually indicated by a padlock icon in web browsers but it can also be indicated by a green address bar or some other means depending on your browser type. The URL of an SSL-secured Websites is also indicated by a prefix that begins with “https://” instead of the standard “http://”
