SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the data which customers submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and products online and they enter their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your Internet site and shall make it more appealing to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, which is normally needed for the SSL installation.
