This is a security feature that you install to your Website. SSL certificates change the beginning of a URL or website address from “HTTP” to “HTTPS” and some times will add a padlock icon or green bar to the address bar in a browser. Having an Security Certificate is the best way to protect your website visitors and make sure all of their valuable data is protected. SSL cert's encrypt all data transmitted to and from a website, preventing attacks where someone could hijack the data before it reaches its destination. Such data may include credit card information, emails and addresses, passwords, private messages, or other sensitive dataWhen choosing your SSL provider, there are several things to look for:
Who is the Certificate Authority the company uses for their certificates?
What kind of support and documentation does the company provide?
Does the provider make SSL management easy and straightforward?
Does the company provide information about each certificate to help you make the right decision for your website?
