What is an SSL Certificate?
An SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) Certificate is a digital certificate that is used to authenticate the identity of a domain name/website. When an SSL Certificate is installed on your domain name all information that is sent to the server will be encrypted.
The SSL certificate itself acts as an electronic passport that will establish the online credentials of a website when doing business online. It is important that your domain has a valid SSL certificate to ensure that if your website visitors are attempting to send confidential information to a server, the user's browser accesses the server's digital certificate and establishes a secure connection. If your domain name is not secure you may notice that you get a browser notification appear when visiting your site to let users know your website isn’t secure.
