WHAT IS AN SSL CERTIFICATE?
SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. It provides top degree security to your site and is particularly necessary for eCommerce businesses. You will know if a website has an SSL certificate if the URL header reads HTTPS, rather than the traditional HTTP.
The ‘S’ displays to all visitors that any sensitive data, like credit card details or login information transferred through the website will remain safe by encrypting it. Once it’s encrypted, it can only be read by the authorised server.
