What is SSL?

SSL is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, an encryption technology. SSL creates an encrypted connection between your web server and your visitors' web browser allowing for private information to be transmitted without the problems of eavesdropping, data tampering, or message forgery. To enable SSL on a website, you will need to get an SSL Certificate that identifies you and install it on the server.

Why you need SSL?

If you are transmitting sensitive information on a web site, such as credit card numbers or personal information, you need to secure it with SSL encryption. It is possible for every piece of data to be seen by others unless it is secured by an SSL certificate.
