SSL Certificates

What is an SSL Certificate?

An SSL Certificate is a digital certificate that confirms a website identity and allows for an encrypted connection between the end user and the website. SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. This is the digital component that allows for an https connection and will show the little padlock in a locked state in the browser window. SSL Certificates installed on a website keep criminals from capturing plain text information going over the internet between a user and a website.

Why do I need an SSL Certificate?

If you are selling products and processing payments or you are collecting information that should be kept confidential (like Social Security Numbers, for example), you definitely need an SSL Certificate on your website. However, since Google started marking websites without an SSL Certificate as “Not Secure” in Chrome (the most widely used browser), it is now our recommendation that ALL websites have an SSL Certificate in place so customers never question the validity or security of your website.
