Have you ever noticed that some URLs start with “http://” while others start with “https://”?
Perhaps you noticed that extra “s” when you were browsing websites that require giving over sensitive information, like when you were paying bills online.
But where’d that extra “s” come from, and what does it mean?
To put it simply, the extra “s” means your connection to that website is secure and encrypted any data you enter is safely shared with that website. The technology that powers that little “s” is called SSL, which stands for Secure Sockets Layer.
Why You Need An SSL Certificate for your website
According to recent Research, over 80% of people will not continue browsing if a site is not secure. SSL Certificates protect your sensitive information such as credit card information, usernames, passwords etc. Even if you haven’t noticed it before, it’s likely your website visitors have too. Even a novice web user these days knows online fraud is on the rise and with it, it’s more important than ever to be able to determine whether they are using a website with a secured web connection (SSL) or not.
