An SSL Certificate (Secure Socket Layer) is encryption technology, originally created back in the 1990’s.
An SSL Certificate provides an encrypted connection between the users web browser and the website server, to keep private information secure – it is common on an e-commerce store as customers will be filling in private details and payment information.
Adopting an SSL certificate is becoming more and more important on all types of websites, especially when Google now tell you they will give you some ranking credit for having an SSL; this makes us all take note!
Until recently, getting an SSL certificate could be costly – but due to the rapid transformation of the web it has made converting to an secure URL with an SSL certificate not only more affordable but also practical.
