What do you need to know about SSL certificates?

Everywhere on the internet you can read about the need for an SSL certificate and that you should have one for your website, but what exactly is this? Don't worry, we can explain what SSL certificates are and why your website should have one.

An SSL certificate (Secure Socket Layer) is used to encrypt the data collected on your website to protect the information of your users. Website URLs with SSL certificates are shown as https: //www.website.com, while unsecured websites are listed as http: //www.website.com. Many web browsers also include a padlock symbol or note "Secure" next to the URL to identify websites with SSL certificates. If your website has online forms or collects personal information such as account numbers, you will need to add an SSL certificate to your website. This way you protect the personal data that you register. 

What about SEO?

Likewise, if you're busy with your search engine rankings (and who isn't?!), You should also consider adding an SSL certificate to your website. In 2014, Google started including security as part of its ranking algorithm and began to favor websites with SSL certificates. Google announced in January 2017 that it started showing websites without SSL certificates as “Not secure” in the search results. If your website is flagged as unsafe, searchers will be less likely to click on your website after doing a Google search, which costs precious traffic. An added bonus: websites with SSL certificates also load faster, which improves user experience and search engine rankings!
