FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions


Why is my website flagged and/or marked as INSECURE?

Undoubtedly, all web browsers and antivirus software are coming up with every possible way to make us feel secure here on the internet. With its recent announcement, earlier this year, Google will flag all the unencrypted internet by the end of 2017.


Google will flag 2/3rd of the web as unsafe.

This means if your website doesn’t have an SSL certificate, it will display a ‘Not Secure’ in the URL bar or flagged/blocked as phishing.

What is SSL Certificate? And How it Works?

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private.If you don’t have the SSL certificate, a secure connection cannot be established.

SSL Certificate has following information:

  • Name of the holder
  • Serial number and expiration date
  • Copy of the certificate holder’s public key
  • Digital Signature of the certificate-issuing authority

Why are SSL Certificates Important?

Here are some of the reasons to have SSL Certificates:


1. Encrypts Sensitive Information

The information you send on the Internet is passed from computer to computer to get to the destination server. Any computer in between you and the server can see your credit card numbers, usernames and passwords, and other sensitive information if it is not encrypted. When an SSL certificate is used, the information becomes unreadable to everyone except for the server you are sending the information to.


2. Protects You From Cybercriminals

It is impossible to escape the increasing number of hacking of websites that don’t have an SSL certificate. They will identify weaknesses in your network…mostly, when information is transmitted. Recently, people have been refining malicious attempts that are specifically designed to capture data while moving between destinations. You surely can protect yourself from this mess by installing SSL certificates that offer a vital means of defending against transit-based hacks.


3. Builds Trust & Brand Power

With SSL certificates, your customers will see visuals like lock icon and green address bar that indicates well-trusted encryption is in use. Well, if I as a customer will see that on your website, I will be assured that my information is traveling safe. Undoubtedly, this will add brand power and boost the credibility of the brand.

How can I save a copy in mail server when I use Microsoft Outlook?

  • On the Tools menu, click E-mail Accounts.
  • Click View or change existing e-mail accounts, and then click Next.
  • Select your ISP account, and then click Change.
  • Click More Settings.
  • Click the Advanced tab, and under Delivery, select the Leave a copy of messages on the server check box.
  • Select one of the following options:
    1. Remove from server after x days E-mail messages are downloaded to your computer but remain on the e-mail server for the number of days that you specify. This is the most common setting for people who want to read their messages at work but also download them for permanent storage on their home computer. We recommend that you choose the smallest number of days that suits your needs. The longer you leave messages on your e-mail server, the greater the risk of exceeding your mailbox size quota.
    2. Remove from server when deleted from ‘Deleted Items’ E-mail messages are downloaded to your computer but also remain on the e-mail server indefinitely until you delete the e-mail message in Outlook and empty the Deleted Items folder. Just deleting the message doesn’t remove the message from the e-mail server.
      If you do not select either check box, messages are left on the server indefinitely. You can eventually exceed your mailbox quota, unless you connect to the e-mail server from another computer that has Outlook configured to remove messages from the e-mail server.
  • Click OK, and then click Finish.

How do I get exempt from state sales tax?

Resale Tax Certificate

In Texas, the sale of a taxable item that is intended for resale is exempt from sales tax. For example, if you operate a shop, you can purchase inventory for the shop tax-free from a wholesaler because you intend to sell the goods to customers and collect the tax on the sales. 
In order to purchase resale goods tax-free, you need to provide the seller with a resale certificate. If you do not provide a certificate, the seller is required to charge you sales tax on the goods. 
Basically, the resale certificate is a guarantee to the seller that you intend on reselling the items and that the sales tax doesn’t need to be collected at the time of purchase.

Non-Profit Tax Exemption Certificate

In Texas, any educational organization can apply for tax-exempt status, and if granted, it will not have to pay sales tax on products purchased for educational purposes.
