What is an SSL certificate?

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates are used to establish an encrypted connection between a user’s browser and your website. The SSL connection protects sensitive data, such as credit card information and personal details from being intercepted from non-authorised parties.

Creating a Secure Connection

SSL is the standard security technology for creating an encrypted
link between your website and your user’s browser. Invisible to the end-user, a process called the “SSL handshake” creates a secure connection between your website and a browser which is then used to encrypt all in-transit data.

Secure vs Not Secure

When a certificate to your website your url changes from http:// to https:// and a secure icon or pad lock is also added to reassure your visitors.
