SSL Certificates help protect users of your website or web application from having their personal information stolen,
by encrypting the connection between your customers and your website.
Why You Need an SSL Certificate
Without an SSL Certificate, sensitive information like passwords and credit card numbers would be transmitted through the Internet in plain text, making it vulnerable to thieves and hackers.
SSL Certificates encrypt this information, making it unreadable to prying eyes.
Protect Your Website
SSL Certificates are absolutely essential for any website that receives or stores personal or sensitive information.
Any website with a login or contact form, or any site that stores sensitive information
(like credit card numbers, social security numbers, personal health information, passwords, email addresses, physical addresses, or any other sensitive data)
should have an SSL Certificate in place.
