Hi

I have made a website in .net 3.0

I want to host the website and after that I want to assure the customers that my site is secure and you can put your necessary information on it.

Is there any certificate for that.

You can get SSL certificates from many sources.  Once you install a certificate on your web server, it will allow you to use https://www.yourwebsite.com rather than http.  No extra coding required by you.

You can get free SSL cetificates from http://www.cacert.org, the only problem is that some computers won't have the root certificate from this certification authority pre-installed, so you will have to provide them a link to the instructions on how to install it.

If you don't mind paying, http://www.rapidssl.com provides certificates that your browser will definitely recognize.  There are many other certification authorities, just do a google search.  Most will also provide instructions on how to request, download and install the certificates.

There are some web security scanners or auditors available. Some free tools are there too. You have to run the scanner against your site and ensure your site is not vulnerable. They will provide you a certificate and you can put it up on your site.
