SSL stands for 'Secure Sockets Layer' and is the web (Internet) standard for secure communication between users and websites by encrypting the data that is transmitted. Data sent via a SSL connection that is encrytped prevents those who eavesdrop or those that like to tamper with the data flow from collecting pertinent and private information. SSL provides websites and users or consumers with the confidence that private data exchanges such as credit card numbers, is kept confidential.
SSL is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, an encryption technology that was created by Netscape. SSL creates an encrypted connection between your web server and your visitors' web browser allowing for private information to be transmitted without the problems of eavesdropping, data tampering, or message forgery.
If your web site is transmitting sensitive information, such as credit card numbers or personal information, then your web site needs to be secured with SSL encryption, otherwise, it is possible for every piece of data to be seen by others.
Users visiting your web site will be assured that the site is secured with a SSL Certificate when their browser displays a little padlock and the address bar begins with an 'https://', (rather than an 'http://') Higher-end SSL certificates, known as EV (extended validation) certificates, are identified by a green address bar, which adds even more security and trust to a web site. SSL Certificates can also be used on web servers for internet security and on mail servers that utilize IMAP, POP3 and SMTP for Email sending and recieving security.
Each source offers a variety of SSL Certificates ranging in prices that will fit any budget and ensure that your site's communication with your users are secure.
