Why your website needs an SSL certificate
An SSL certificate is basically like a digital certificate that allows a website to encrypt your data.
if you can imagine when you send a letter in the post you always seal the envelope, you would never dream of leaving your letter open for someone to read. The seal on your envelope is just like the SSL certificate on your website.
SSL which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is mostly used on e-commerce sites and where users submit personal or credit card information.
The SSL encryption can help prevent hackers from accessing your personal data including your credit card numbers, bank information, name and addresses.
SSL certificates are essential for building trust with your customers.
As the public become more aware of the increase of online scams, it is more important than ever to make sure you take your customers security seriously.
