This Service Order (hereinafter "SO") is an integral and essential part of the General Conditions of Service (hereinafter "GCS").

The Service gives to the Customer the possibility to use a SSL Certificate, which consists of a key pair as well as verified identification information. When a web browser (or Customer) points to a secured website, the server shares the public key with the Customer to establish an encryption method and a unique session key. The Customer confirms that it recognizes and trusts the issuer of the SSL Certificate. This process is known as the "SSL handshake" and it begins a secure session that protects message privacy, message integrity, and server security.
The Customer acknowledges and accepts that Register.it acts only as reseller of an external provider, Symantec, as better specified below. Therefore the Customer accepts that the present SO abides to the obligations contained in the Symantec's SSL Certificate Subscriber Agreement, published in the repository on the Symantec website at
