What is SSL?
The full form of SSL is Secure Socket Layer. It enables a secure and safe online conversation with your website users.
How does it work?
Imagine you were speaking to a friend of yours about something very important and someone overhears your conversation. Would you feel safe? What if your conversation had sensitive personal information like a bank account number or your Date of Birth?
This information can be a potential gold mine for a person wanting to steal your information and use it for his selfish purposes. It can be a potential disaster!
Now imagine, you were speaking to the same friend about the same information in a so-called ” SSL zone”. No third person can understand what you both were speaking because every word spoken is coded into a secret language. Doesn’t it instantly make you feel safe?
This is what an SSL does to your website. It creates a secure layer that encodes every information shared between you and your customers. Therefore, no hacker can understand what the conversation was about.
Why should you get one for your website?
- Customer trust is improved as it provides an added assurance to your website visitors.
- It guards against hacking and phishing
- Builds your credibility and authority
- Most importantly Google recognises your website to be safe for online users to visit. Otherwise your visitors will get a message warning them that the site is non secure. This can mean loss of valuable potential customers.
Note: After July 24th 2018, websites without a SSL certificate will be marked as Nonsecure.
