Secure Sockets Layer
An SSL certificate is a type of digital certificate that provides authentication for a website and enables an encrypted connection. SSL, short for Secure Sockets Layer, is commonly used on e-commerce sites and pages that require users to submit personal or credit card information.
SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer and is a technology used to encrypt data being transmitted between our visitors and the servers in order to prevent eavesdropping. This is particularly crucial when sensitive information such as credit card numbers or passwords are being entered on our website, as is often the case for online stores, contact forms, or password-protected sections. Sites secured by an SSL certificate will show a padlock in the address bar and may choose to display a special site seal to certify that data transmissions are protected.
