What is an SSL Certificate?
The SSL(Secure Socket Layer) certificates are created to make both users and businesses feel less threatened when they are submitting or processing personal data.
If you are selling something or processing personal data of any kind, you need to have an SSL Certificate, so the data will be encrypted.
Any information sent through SSL is encrypted, which prevents any interference or tapping on the transfer.
Do I Need an SSL?
Having an SSL Certificate significantly helps your brand. Especially when it comes to trustworthiness. The little padlock that your users will see in their browsers, is always a positive sign for whether they can trust buying from you.
If you are selling through your website or the users are entering sensitive data on your website, it is mandatory for you to protect your website and their data.
