SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is an encryption technology that creates an encrypted connection between your web server and your customers’ web browser allowing for private information to be transmitted securely.
To enable SSL on a website, you will need to get an SSL certificate that identifies you and install it on the server. The use of an SSL certificate on a website is usually indicated by a padlock icon in web browsers but it can also be indicated by a green address bar. Once you have done the SSL install, you can access a site securely by changing the URL from http to https. When an SSL certificate is installed on a website, you can be sure that the information you enter (passwords, personal info, credit card information, etc.) is secured and only seen by the organization that owns the website.
