An SSL certificate is a certificate that your website gets when you secure your website with end to end encryption to protect your data and your user’s information which they present to your website. SSL certificates are issued by certificate authority that is responsible for certifying ownership of a public key by the named subject of the certificate.
A protected website uses the HTTPS protocol (secure hypertext transfer protocol) instead of the HTTP protocol (hypertext transfer protocol); the S means that it is a secure site. The unsecure site has no S in its protocol; the site also has no padlock symbol at the URL but the secured sight includes a lock symbol at the URL at the address of the website.
It is therefore important to secure your site to create confidence in your users who visit your website to ensure that they trust the information they submit will not be tampered with or stolen by hackers and website crashers.
Not only is it important to protect your site for the user’s sake but also for the sake of safety of your data and digital files. With no protection you can be easily crashed especially with the increased cybercrimes the security is a number one issue that every website should ensure that safety measures are installed.
