What is an SSL certificate?
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is an online security standard that encrypts communications between the hosting server and browser, thus providing integrity and security for data transfer between user and website.
Why are SSL certificates so important?
- Get a top position in Google rankings
Encryption available through SSL certificates positively influences the position of your site in search engine results. Websites that use SSL (https instead of http) benefit from Google’s security policy, which prioritizes sites available via https.
- Encrypts and protects user data
SSL certificates ensure the security of information entered on the website (user accounts, passwords, bank card numbers, etc.). Communication between the user’s browser and the server takes place via a secure connection.
- Guarantees the identity of your website
It inspires confidence and security to customers by guaranteeing the identity of your site. Even if you do not ask for bank cards or other confidential information, it’s important that the user’s browsing on your site remains private.
