SSL Certificates provide secure, encrypted communications between a website and an internet browser. SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer, the protocol which provides the encryption. SSL Certificates were used to install on pages that require end-users to submit sensitive information over the internet like credit card details or passwords. Example pages include payment pages, online forms and login pages.

SSL is not just for a big e-commerce website. Even if your site is a static website which contains not even a contact form, you still need to have an SSL on your domain. Browsers like Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox started displaying warning notifying a visitor that the website is NOT secure. And Google gives priority to a website which has a valid SSL certificate in their search result. Do you want your website omitted from the Google search listing?
