What is SSl and How it works?

What is SSL?

     SSl stands for Secure Sockets Layer. The name itself indicates that it is for security purpose. Secure Sockets Layer is a standard security technology for establishing  an encrypted link between the web server and a browser. Basically Security is important for all kind of websites even if it is a small business.One of the most important components in online business is creating a trusted environment where the customers feel confident in making purchases. SSL certificates create a foundation of trust by establishing a secure connection.

SSl certificate

      Nowadays most of the people will like to buy the things online instead of going to shops or malls. Here, they need to enter their personal information such as their banking information for their purchasing. So security is very much important. SSL allows sensitive information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers and login credentials to be transmitted securely. Suppose if the website doesn’t have SSL, then while transmitting the information over the internet it will transfer from one computer to the destination computer. So when passing the information, there may be a chance to the man in middle can attack.


     Anybody can create a certificate, but the browsers only trust the certificates that come from an organization on their trusted list of CAs. Certificate authorities are a critical part of the internet’s public key infrastructure because they issue the Secure Sockets Layer certificates that web browsers use to authenticate content sent from web servers



How SSL works?

  • The browser attempts to connect to the website secured with SSL. Browser requests the web identify itself.
  • Then the web server sends the copy of its SSL certificate including server’s public key.
  • The browser checks whether to trust the SSL certificate or not. It checks the certificate root against a list of trusted CA.
  • If the browser trusts the SSl certificate, it creates, encrypts and sends the private key using server’s public key.
  • The web server sends digitally signed acknowledgement to start an encrypted session.
  • Finally, encrypted data is shared between the browser and the web server.

Responsible Waste Management Tips In London

As a home or business owner in London, you have the sole responsibility of ensuring that the premises is clean and habitable at all times. Part of ensuring this includes effective waste collection and clearance.  The UK law is very clear on how you are supposed to dispose of any waste, domestic or commercial.  But it goes beyond what the law says, it is about adopting effective waste management tips in our day to day lives. Think long term, start small. Effective waste management is more than just hiring the right waste removal company; it’s also about generating less waste in the first place, recycling whatever is recyclable, and so on so forth. In this article, we have listed down a list of easy tips to guide you in managing your waste in London responsibly;

  • Reduce; reducing is the first tip towards ensuring that you effectively manage your waste. This applies in both domestic and commercial premises. It’s better to carry your own shopping bag to the supermarket than rely on the packaging offered therein; you’ll have more to dispose of at the end of the day. Similarly, not all waste is really waste. Food leftovers should not be dumped in bins or landfills as they attract rodents and scavengers; instead, invest in a composter to help turn such into useful compost manure. In other words, reduce the waste you generate both at the decision-making level, and at the final stage of disposal.
  • Recycle; recycling is also a smart and profitable way of effectively managing your waste. Most of the waste generated in homes, offices, even construction sites and many more places, can be recycled. Plastic bottles, soda cans, product and gift wrappings, cardboards, plastic pipes used in plumbing, and so much more. At the decision making level, you have to ensure that the waste removal company you’re hiring in London has a history or recycling their waste. Will they take what’s recyclable to nearby London recycling points? Are their services inherently eco friendly? Never take for granted such factors when hiring a waste removal company, recycling is the last frontier when it comes to reversing the damage already done to the environment. Do your part by ensuring that all your recyclable waste ends up being recycled.
  • Landfills not always the solution; there’s the wrong notion with most Londoners that landfills are the final and perfect destinations for all waste and rubbish. But truth is that, landfills are filling faster and posing many problems. Methane is one example of greenhouse gases, that’s produced in landfills. Thus, always keep in mind the principle or reducing, reducing the amount of waste generated in your home or work area, and ensuring that we recycle or reuse what is usable.  Here at Express Waste Removals, we pride ourselves of high effectiveness; only about 15% or so of waste collected from your premises ends up in landfills. The rest is recycled and dropped off at the designated recycling spots across the city. Our professionals can also advice you on how to build your own home composter. Composters are great for preparing your own manure that you can later use on the lawn and kitchen garden.


Effective waste management should be more of a lifestyle, rather than a few acts here and there.  Get a professional and reputable waste removal company, find out about their recycling policies, and then ensure that they handle all your waste. It brings a sense of relief knowing that the waste you’ve generated from your home or office will end up being recycled into something new. Express Waste Removals is your true partner in this journey, for all your waste removal company needs, so talk to us today for details on the services we offer.

For the last eight years we have been attending Plant Fairs and have enjoyed meeting new friends, many of whom have visited us at the nursery.

A list of 2011 venues will be updated on the Events page shortly.

Kenwick Farmhouse Nursery and Tearooms were recently featured in the Good Taste- The magazine from Tastes of Lincolnshire.  This has resulted in increased customers visiting the tea rooms and Nursery.  The tea rooms have seen such an increase that we are now advising all customers wishing to visit for Sunday lunch to book in advance to avoid disappointment.

We are pleased to announce that our tea rooms have undergone a major extension providing much needed extra seating allowing us to accomodate larger parties.
