What is an SSL certificate?
SSL (secure sockets layer) certificates are data files that create a secure link between a website and a visitor’s browser. When they are installed in a web server they activate the padlock and the https protocol and allow secure connection from a web server to a browser. An SSL certificate binds together the server name, domain name and the organization’s identity. Websites which are secure use HTTPS protocol (secure HTTP) instead of HTTP protocol.
Why you need an SSL certificate
You need an SSL certificate to keep sensitive information passed across your website a user’s browser encrypted so that only the intended person receives the information. This helps to protect user’s confidential information from being tampered with or read by hackers and web crashers, you create confidence in your website users as they get sure that any information that they send to you will not be tampered with.
