What is an SSL certificate?
An SSL certificate is a digital file that binds cryptographic key pairs to a website's details. It serves as a digital passport that verifies the authenticity and legitimacy of a website, establishing a secure connection between the server and the user's browser. SSL certificates enable encrypted communication, protecting sensitive data like login credentials, financial information, and personal details from unauthorized access and interception.
Nowadays is crucial to use encryption and SSL certificates for webshops - if you do not have an SSL certificate, no online payments will work in your shop, and furthermore, Google penalizes webshops without SSL certificates. In a nutshell, if you thrive to have a successful online store, it is necessary to meet global security standards.
