    What Is SSL?

    SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a server and a client—typically a web server (website) and a browser, or a mail server and a mail client (e.g., Outlook).

    SSL allows sensitive information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, and login credentials to be transmitted securely. Normally, data sent between browsers and web servers is sent in plain text—leaving you vulnerable to eavesdropping. If an attacker is able to intercept all data being sent between a browser and a web server, they can see and use that information.

    More specifically, SSL is a security protocol. Protocols describe how algorithms should be used. In this case, the SSL protocol determines variables of the encryption for both the link and the data being transmitted.
    SSL secures millions of peoples' data on the Internet every day, especially during online transactions or when transmitting confidential information. Internet users have come to associate their online security with the lock icon that comes with an SSL-secured website or green address bar that comes with an extended validation SSL-secured website. SSL-secured websites also begin with https rather than http.

    SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer and, in short, it's the standard technology for keeping an internet connection secure and safeguarding any sensitive data that is being sent between two systems, preventing criminals from reading and modifying any information transferred, including potential personal details. The two systems can be a server and a client (for example, a shopping website and browser) or server to server (for example, an application with personal identifiable information or with payroll information).

    SSL certificate adds the security to your all data over the internet. It will provide the data integrity. Also, it secures your details like the credit card or other sensitive information. When you are using any payment gateway like PayPal then it's compulsory to have the SSL installed on your website.

    Sites having SSL installed on it have the more traffic, compare to the non-SSL sites.When end users see the green padlock while accessing your website on top left corner of the web-browser then it indicated him that it's trusted site. If there is no SSL then any computer connected to your server can see the username, password and other credentials on your site.When there is SSL installed on your website that time data on your website will be sent in encrypted format on internet so no can hack it.

    So it's always recommended to have SSL on you domain.
