Free SSL Certificate
Get a free SSL certificate for your website. There are many benefits to getting an SSL for your site. An SSL provides authentication, what this means is that you know that the information that you are sending is going to go to the right server, and not to a scam server that’s trying to steal your information. This is especially important for your customers if you are doing any form of financial transaction via your site.
An SSL encrypts sensitive information. This means that only the intended recipient will be able to read it. Often when you send information over the Internet it gets passed through several computers before it reaches its destination server. If this information is encrypted than none of the sensitive information such as credit card numbers, usernames and passwords can be read. This is great protection against identity thieves, phishing scams and hackers.
Having an SSL also provides trust for your website. Many web browsers will have a padlock icon or something similar in the address bar to show that your site is safe. With an SSL your sites URL web address will now have a prefix of https instead of just http. Many SSL providers will also give you a trust seal for your website. All of this combines to make your site a lot more trustworthy and as a consequence, this will make your visitors much more likely to buy something from your site with confidence. If you are taking any sort of credit card transaction on your site, you will be required to have an SSL certificate for PCI compliance.
