SSL Certificate Installation

What is SSL, and do I need it for my website?

An SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate is a digital certificate that authenticates the identity of your website and encrypts the information sent from your website to the server via SSL technology.  The data is encrypted (scrambled) into an undecipherable format that can only be returned to a readable format with the proper decryption key.

The SSL certificate serves as an electronic “passport” that establishes your website’s credentials when doing business on the Web.  When an internet user attempts to send confidential information to a Web server, the user’s browser accesses the server’s digital certificate and establishes a secure connection.  This keeps your site user’s information safe, and “unhackable”.

Is an SSL Certificate Necessary?

Well, the short answer is YES…even if you’re not collecting personal information from your website’s visitors! 

Your website definitely needs an SSL certificate if you are asking for any personal information.  But there’s more to it than that.  All of the search search engines are cracking down on perceived ‘non-secure’ websites.  Any websites without the SSL certificate will remain “http” while those with encryption will show “https” in users’ browsers.  Chrome, Firefox and other browsers now issue warnings that sites without SSL are not secure. Additionally, Google recently announced that SSL is a ranking signal, so unless you have SSL, your site will be harder to find, impacting your traffic and revenue. 

SSL Encryption Offers the Following Advantages

  1. High encryption levels of up to 256-bit to protect your visitor’s sensitive information.

  2. Provides strong encryption to protect your visitor’s information from phishing scams, hackers, and attacks.

  3. Protects your website from cyber attacks, which reduces the risk of hacking,  eavesdropping, and man-in-the-middle attacks.

  5. Establishes a safe shopping experience – It’s necessary for websites accepting payments.

  6. Proves your business authentication, and increases your brand’s reputation by validating your business from Trusted Certificate Authority (CA)

  7. Displays Green Address Bar along with Organization Name (Only for EV SSL).
