SSL certificates provide security to your website. Customers will feel safe knowing that you have taken steps to make your site secure.
What is SSL?
SSL provides an encrypted connection between a web browser and the web server. It is used to prevent evesdroppers from spying on your pages. When the connection is scrambled with encryption it becomes safe to pass credit cards and other sensitive information. Even if you are not doing ecommerce, the privacy of encryption is something customers are beginning to demand.
Buying Vs Free SSL certificates
Many people are doing it wrong.
Buying the SSL certificate with your web host is not enough. The links in your database need to be converted. Without this step you risk slowing down your website with redirects or sending customers to unsecured pages.
Google has announced that having a secure website will factor into your SEO website optimization.
