Do you need an SSL Certificate for your website?

Learning about website “stuff” can be pretty daunting. It is crucial that what you put “out there” is secure and trustworthy, which is why you need an SSL certificate for your website.

Understanding SSL

An SSL certificate (Secure Sockets Layer) encrypts the data flowing between your website and your end-user (client).

Typically you will see a secure padlock in the URL bar on the site, and you’ll also see that the website begins with https://

What this means is usernames, passwords, credit card details etc. are all transmitted securely, giving your client greater confidence in the information they share with you.

These days, its more common for a website to have an SSL certificate than not.

Websites without an SSL have a greater risk of not only being hacked, but also losing client confidence.

Why an SSL certificate is important for your website:

  • Any data being exchanged between your website and your client is encrypted
  • It instills trust with your users and builds brand power
  • Your clients will avoid warnings from browsers displaying messages such as “Not Secure” when visiting your site
  • Your site has a greater presence in search rankings when it has an SSL
  • An SSL will protect you from cyber criminals
