What is SSL And do You Need It

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. SSL is a standard security method for establishing an encypted connection between a web server and the visitor browser. To be able to make such secure connection, the website has to posses an SSL Certificate.

SSL Certificates are issued by authoritive organizations that are responsible to issue them only to companies or legally accountable individuals.

If you are planning to start an eCommerce website or you are collecting sensible information from your visitors an SSL Certificate is a must for your site. It ensures that no one can intercept the connection between your site and your visitors and get information that is supposed to be private.

In addition, having an SSL Certificate assures your visitors that your website is not a scam but a reputable company or individual that is taking care about the security of his/hers visitors.
