Frequently Asked Questions
What is SSL?
SSL or Secure Sockets Layer is the standard security technology for creating an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browser remain private and integral. SSL is an industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their online transactions with their customers.
Do I need a SSL Certificate for my website?
With SSL Certificates becoming a requirement, not having one is simply no longer an option. Not having a valid SSL Certificate could seriously be hurting your website’s traffic and conversions.
If you are collecting sensitive information or providing customer accounts via your website then you will need an SSL Certificate. In addition to increased consumer confidence and a speed advantage, Google has revealed that adding a SSL Certificate will give your site a SEO ranking boost.
How will visitors know my website is safe?
The easiest way to tell that a site is using a valid SSL Certificate is to look at the address bar in your browser. When a visitor enters a SSL-protected page on your website, their browser displays a padlock icon and the https:// prefix in the URL address.
What will happen if I don't protect my website with a SSL Certificate?
Google will flag your website as “not secure”.
