What is an SSL Certificate (HTTPS)?

An SSL certificate verifies that the domain name in the certificate matches the domain name of the website being visited. It allows a visitors browser to make a secure connection to the website and allows the traffic back and forth to be encrypted so 3rd-parties cannot eavesdrop on the connection.

SSL Encryption is critical for e-commerce websites or any website where sensitive information is being transmitted between the visitors browser and the website.

Google Chrome, FireFox, Internet Explorer, Safari and most modern browsers will now displaying a warning when visiting a website that does not have an SSL Certificate.

SSL Certificates not only protect the connection between the visitor and your website but they also provide a level of confidence to the visitor that the website is secure.
