What is an SSL Certificate?
An SSL Certificate (Secure Sockets Layer), also called a Digital Certificate, creates a secure link between a website and a visitor’s browser.
By ensuring that all data passed between the two remains private and secure, SSL encryption prevents hackers from stealing private information such as credit card numbers, names and addresses.
If you sell products or services on your website and accept credit cards online, you need an SSL Certificate for website security. If you don’t sell online but want to add credibility to your website, a Site Confirm Seal may be sufficient.

How do SSL Certificates work ? An SSL certificate creates a secure digital tunnel that blocks hackers and computer thieves from seeing usernames, passwords, credit card numbers, or other valuable information.
The SSL Contract
When a visitor enters any area of your website protected by the SSL protocol, the security certificate automatically creates an encrypted connection with their browser. And when you show your SSL security certificate on all your pages and subdomains, your site is even more secure.
The Lock icon appears
Once the connection is made, the lock icon and the https title will appear in the browser bar to indicate that your website is safe to browse, buy, send emails, subscribe to your mailing list, etc. And if there was a “Site not safe” tag before, poof! now is gone.
¡Your website is ready!
All the information that transfers to and from your website is now encrypted, This makes it virtually impossible for anyone to steal sensitive data from your website
- The primary reason why SSL is used is to keep sensitive information sent across the Internet encrypted so that only the intended recipient can access it. This is important because the information you send on the Internet is passed from computer to computer to get to the destination server.
- Any computer in between you and the server can see your credit card numbers, usernames and passwords, and other sensitive information if it is not encrypted with an SSL certificate. When an SSL certificate is used, the information becomes unreadable to everyone except for the server you are sending the information to. This protects it from hackers and identity thieves.
