SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser.
This basically means that all data passed between the web server and browser is private and encrypted.
The four main reasons why your website should have SSL:
-Encrypts Sensitive Information
-Protects You From Cybercriminals
-Builds Trust & Brand Power
-An SSL Certificate has SEO Benefits
In the past, even if your website doesn’t collect any sensitive data, such as credit/debit cards you may not have needed an SSL certificate.
However, since the modern browser notices, it’s vitally important to ensure every website has an SSL certificate and is loaded via HTTPS.
Thats is why we install and setup an SSL certificate on every website we create, it has become an essential part of web design today.
