What is SSL
- An SSL certificate encrypts data a user inputs into your websites so that it can securely travel from their browser to your web server. ... You can easily find whether your website has an SSL certificate by whether the URL of the site starts with HTTP or HTTPS.
Why is SSL important for websites?
- This is important because the information you send on the Internet is passed from computer to computer to get to the destination server. Any computer in between you and the server can see your credit card numbers, usernames and passwords, and other sensitive information if it is not encrypted with an SSL certificate.
Why Should I Put an SSL Certificate On My Website?
- SSL Certificates Secure the Transfer of Data
It’s important to secure data that’s submitted to your web server from your users – especially if that data is sensitive in nature. Whether a user on your website is submitting a contact form, login form, or credit card information, it’s vital to keep their data safe with an SSL certificate.
- An SSL Certificate has SEO Benefits
Google’s search algorithm gives websites a boost to your site in their search rankings when your website has an SSL certificate. It might not be noticeable, but it’s one of the many factors Google takes into consideration when calculating where in search results your website should land.
In short, your website needs the security and SEO visibility of an SSL certificate today.
