SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the data which clients submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase products and services online and they type in their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the safety of your site and shall make it more inviting to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that is normally needed for the SSL installation.
