What are the SSL Certificates?

An SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate encrypts the information that online visitors send and receive from your website. Every time a user provides confidential information (passwords, credit card numbers etc), a secure connection is created with the user’s browser ensuring that no third party will access them.

Using an SSL certificate, you protect your customer’s personal data and ensure their online transactions. Thus, you create a reliable space where your customers can feel secure. Depending on the SSL type you choose, you will be able to verify your website in different levels.
