WHAT IS AN SSL CERTIFICATE?
SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. It might sound complex, but it's really not.
An SSL creates a secure tunnel through which information including usernames, passwords, credit card numbers and more can pass safely.
SSL Certificates validate your website's identity, and encrypt the information visitors send to, or receive from, your site. This keeps thieves from spying on any exchange between you and your visitors.
When you have an SSL Certificate protecting your website, your customers can rest assured that the information they enter on any secured page is private and can't be viewed by cyber crooks.
SSL is the standard for web security, and a Server Certificate is required by most merchant account services – you'll need one if you plan to accept credit cards on your website.
How it works
1. The SSL handshake
When a visitor enters an SSL-protected website, your SSL certificate automatically creates a secure, encrypted connection with their browser. Your site is most secure when SSL is deployed on all pages and subdomains.
2. The padlock icon appears
Once the connection is complete, a padlock icon and HTTPS prefix appear in the visitor’s browser bar to show them they’re safe to share personal details. If you install an EV (Extended Validation) SSL, the browser will activate the green bar and display your company name to prove you're legit.
3. You're protected
All information passing to and from your website is now scrambled by 2048-bit encryption that's virtually unbreakable by hackers.
