* SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a secure protocol developed for sending information securely over the Internet. Many websites use SSL for secure areas of their sites, such as user account pages.SSL encrypts the data being transmitted so that a third party cannot “eavesdrop” on the transmission and view the data being transmitted. NBH and all our associates insist you to use SSL if possible.

** All the ports mentioned here are the settings that can come by default and can be changed by user and/or hosting provider.
