What is SSL?

Updated on June 16, 2021

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer and, in short, it’s the standard technology for keeping a website’s connection secure. It safeguards any sensitive data that is being sent between the website and the user, thereby preventing criminals from reading and hijacking any information that is being transferred, including personal and credit card details.

Why do I need SSL on my website? #

SSL    is a requirement for e-commerce websites and websites that require features such as user management and databases.

Without SSL, modern browsers would trigger a stern warning to your website visitors to let them know that they are on a website that is not secure — and we are very sure you don’t want that because it scares your users in some ways and passes a lot of negative message about your brand’s security consciousness.

While SSL is not compulsory for all websites, it is recommended for websites of all kinds, regardless of purpose.
