Hazards of an Expired SSL certificateby comodoSSL store SSL Certificates Reseller
Your Loss, Your Competitor’s Gain
A stark pop-up window that warns about the site’s expired SSL certificate status is enough to scare the visitors away, who would make sure not to purchase from the website out of security concerns. And for any online business, customer loss and a consequent reduction in web-traffic are two very important factors, which cannot be ignored.
As per a recent survey conducted, almost 90% of customers stop the process of transaction after getting an SSL-expiry warning, while about 72% prefer to terminate the transaction on an immediate basis. Therefore, apart from increasing the operating costs, an expired SSL certificate causes a heavy dwindling of the online sales.
Although, the certificates and the information it stores within are properly retained in case of a website with expired SSL certificate, but all the verification performed by the certificate becomes invalid.
