What is SSL?

The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol is the standard for securely authenticating sites and for encrypting data between users and Web servers. SSL is built into all commonly used browsers and Web servers, installing a digital certificate or Server ID is all it takes to enables SSL.

An SSL connection ensures all information sent between a user and the server is encrypted by the sending software and decrypted by the receiving software, ensuring private information isn't recieved by unintended users, as well all data sent over an encrypted SSL connection is protected by additional measures to prevent tampering, meaning the data cannot be altered by being transmitted. In short, this means your users can trust that any information they provide to your site is safe and secure. Top
