Why are SSL certificates, FQDN and DNS important

  1. SSL connectivity encrypts connections on LAN and WAN networks, avoiding data tampering and middle-man data theft like SPOOFING or PHISHING.
  2. All transactions would be encrypted with 256 bits, including hotelRSV reservations sync, Electronic Invoice and Electronic Accounting, Front Office, POS and Spaces data, API data, Tripadvisor, etc; thus, your company's information, as well as clients' and suppliers' sensitive information is not subject to tampering.
  3. Official DNS ensure correct mapping (server verification) and uptime for remote access, remote support, data backup services and monitoring services provided by Novohit.
