An SSL certificate is an electronic document that verifies your business identity and allows a web server to establish a secure encryption with a visitor's web browser. As with website hosting, there are many SSL certificate providers and options available. You might want to check with your existing web host to find out what SSL certificate offerings they have available and whether they can assist with certificate installation. The most affordable option typically offered by web hosts is called a "shared certificate." Using a shared certificate is acceptable for satisfying the AdWords SSL policy requirements.

Secure Sockets Layer, a protocol developed by Netscape for transmitting private documents via the Internet. SSL uses a cryptographic system that uses two keys to encrypt data − a public key known to everyone and a private or secret key known only to the recipient of the message. Both Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer support SSL, and many Web sites use the protocol to obtain confidential user information, such as credit card numbers. By convention, URLs that require an SSL connection start with https: instead of http

When you access an URL that begins with https , the data is encrypted (is not plain text). Is more secure; usually is used for payment pages.

Hello Friend....

SSL Certificates are little data files that digitally attach a cryptographic input to an organizationís details. When installed on a web server, it activates the padlock and the https protocol and allows secure connections from a web server to a browser. Typically, SSL is used to secure credit card transactions, data transfer and logins, and more recently is becoming the norm when securing browsing of social media sites.
