What is an SSL Certificate?
Secure Your Site With An SSL Certificate
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.
How does it work?
SSL certificates utilise two "keys", a public key & a private key. These work together to establish an encrypted connection.
When viewing a website that doesn't have an SSL Certificate (a standard http:// website) the content between a browser and a web server is sent as plain text, which can leave you vulnerable to hackers and snoopers.
Do You Need One?
Do I need an SSL Certificate?
The short answer is yes! All sites should have an SSL Certificate.
While our websites are hosted on secure servers which are monitored & have restricted access, SSL Certificate will secure the public facing part of your website.
This reassures your website users that their details are secure (e.g. placing orders, their address & billing details - even sending an email through a contact form) it can also help with search engine rankings.
A small boost in ranking is awarded to secure websites by Google over unsecure.
