SSL certificate basics

Last Updated: Sep 27, 2023

SSL, short for secure socket layer, creates an encrypted connection between your web server and your visitor's web browser. This allows for private information like credit card details to be transmitted without eavesdropping, data tampering, or message forgery. If a site is using an SSL certificate, web browsers will usually indicate it with a padlock icon or a green address bar.
