SSL certificates

What’s an SSL certificate?

The SSL protocol is used to secure communication against eavesdropping and to authenticate communicating parties. Private information and data are encrypted and user has a guarantee that they are communicating with those they originally wanted to communicate with. The addresses of the sites secured with SSL begin https:// and these sites are favoured in search results.

The SSL certificate should be used mainly for websites with e-shops and other sites that need to handle their user’s personal information, passwords, credit card details etc.

You can find more information about SSL certificates and how they work in our Knowledge base.
