Why are SSL certificates
- Encrypt Sensitive Information
Protect your customers' data from prying eyes - whether it be passwords, credit card details or other personal/sensitive data.
- Provides Authentication
Ensures that you are sending information to the trusted origin server and not impostors (known as men in the middle) trying to hijack information.
- Build Trust
Visitors will trust your website more when they see visual cues like a lock icon or a green bar and will therefore be more likely to convert into a paying customer.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is an SSL?
SSL Certificates are small data files that digitally bind a cryptographic key to an organization's details. When installed on a web server (or a web hosting account), it activates the padlock and the "https" protocol and allows secure connections from a web server to a browser.
Why does my website need an SSL?
The main reason why SSL is used is to keep sensitive information sent across the Internet encrypted so that only the intended recipient can access it. Credit cards and personal data are two of the most notable types of sensitive data that need an SSL certificate. This also applies to contact forms on your website, booking forms, etc.
Do I really need SSL on my website?
Yes! In the past, it was acceptable for websites to not use an SSL, especially if it did not collect sensitive data from users. However, with today's lastest browser notifications, all websites are required to have an SSL (HTTPS), otherwise, the website will show as unsecured (not secure) in all major browsers like Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, etc.
