Why should my website hold an SSL certificate?

Nearly 2 billion digital buyers are predicted to perform online transactions by 2019, so the protection of data has become a major aspect to look at. Even if your website doesn't process bank transactions or the information that you store from your visitors is not sensitive, holding an SSL certificate is a must.

But... what are SSL Certificates?

The SSL Certificate badge on your website shows your visitors that their private information is secured.

Secure Sockets Layer (or SSL), is the most widely spread security Protocol. It is an industry standard, used by many owners of online businesses to protect the private information of their customers. It creates a secure channel between the browser and the server so it encrypts the information protecting it from malicious attempts so all the transferred data remains safe.

It protects your visitors’ credit card numbers, login details, and passwords along with other private user information that might be exposed to hackers or scammers.

How do I know if my website has a Certificate?

The protected websites contain a green “Lock” icon on the left side of the address bar and the URL of the website starts with https, instead of http.

Other Benefits

The Search Engine Optimization (SEO) of your website will be positively influenced by the SSL Certificate. Google considers website security as one of the criteria for displaying results in its search engine, meaning that all websites, secured with SSL, will be ranked higher.
