    When a website has an SSL certificate properly installed on the server, a small green padlock icon will be displayed to the left of a website URL in the browser and https will appear in green as well. SSL certificates are used to secure data transfers, credit card transactions, logins and other personal information.

    SSL is the backbone of our secure Internet and it protects your sensitive information as it travels across the world's computer networks. SSL is essential for protecting your website, even if it doesn't handle sensitive information like credit cards. It provides privacy, critical security and data integrity for both your websites and your users' personal information.

    Secure Sockets Layer – is a protocol in the form of a certificate that can be installed with any hosted domain to improve the security of your website. In short, SSL is installed to the hosting server and encrypts communications.

    SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a standard technology behind establishing an encrypted connection between a web server (host) and a web browser (client). This connection between the two makes sure that all the data passed between them remain private and intrinsic. SSL is an industry standard and is used by millions of websites to protect their online transactions with their customers. If you have ever visited a website using the https:// in the address bar you were creating a secure connection via SSL. If you have an eshop or sell items via your website, SSL helps in establishing trust with your customers.

    Secure Socket Layer (SSL)

    Google prefers SSL certified websites. When a site is secure with an SSL certificate, a padlock icon is visible in the address bar and the URL prefix changes from http:// to https://. So, it means SSL plays a very very important part and you should add this.

    SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a conventional technology behind building an encrypted connection between a web server and a web browser. This connection makes sure that all the data passed between them remain private and intrinsic.

    As the Internet grows as a medium of communication, commerce, and interaction, so do the prevalence of risks and security threats. So an SSL certificate is beneficial to protect your domain.

    You require an SSL Certificate for website security if you sell products or services on your website and accept credit cards online. SSL encryption blocks hackers from stealing private information such as credit card numbers, names, and addresses.
