SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer, a security method which allows for the encryption of data when being transferred over a server.
SSL certificates help to protect the transfer of sensitive information such as credit card numbers, passwords and usernames and more.
SSL certificates utilize two "keys", a public key and a private key. These keys work together to establish an encrypted connection.
When viewing a website that doesn't have a SSL Certificate (a standard http:// website) the contentbetween a browser and a web server is sent as plain text, which can leave you vulnerable to hackers and snoopers.
The short answer is yes! All sites should have an SSL Certificate.
While our websites are hosted on secure servers, meaning its content and any access to it is monitored and restricted, however an SSL Certificate will secure the customer facing part of your website.
Not only does this help show your customers and users that their details are secure when using your site (placing orders with their billing details, or even sending a message through a contact form on the site) it can also help with search engine rankings.
Search engine Google takes having a secure site in to consideration which can help in providing a small boost to your sites rankings.
