A Code Signing Certificate is an added security tool for your website that builds trust by ensuring your site is trustworthy. It proves to your Internet users that the code or software on your site is yours, trustworthy, and secure. The first thing the code signing does is validate your code by primarily checking its integrity. It also secures it and removes warning notices such as “Unidentified Publisher” .
It certifies the site by adding a certificate-based digital signature to scripts or software. This digital signature verifies who you are and that your website code was not corrupted since it was checked. It is like an ID card for your site.
It is typically done in addition to a SSL and other security measures such as SiteLock or Sucuri malware scanning programs.
Code signing can be complicated and does not apply to everyone. If you have a question you may contact your hosting provider and see if they offer the service or contact our team directly.
