About SSL certificates
What is an SSL certificate?
SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificate encrypts your information and transmits it to the server securely, such as credit card information, name or address, etc., so that hackers cannot steal it. These include SSL and TLS, which we usually refer to as SSL. To visit a website that supports SSL, we will use https:// . If the site's SSL certificate is valid, a green tick or green address bar will appear.
What are the benefits of using an SSL certificate?
1. Using an SSL certificate, website data is transmitted in encrypted form to protect website transactions and customer privacy information;
2. SSL certificate is one of the factors that affect the ranking of a website in search engines;
3. Prevent the website from being hijacked by traffic;
4. For websites without SSL certificates, an "unsafe" mark will appear in the browser address bar, which greatly affects the user's trust in the website. After the SSL certificate is deployed, when users access the website through HTTPS, a "lock" logo will be displayed in the address bar of the browser, which increases the user's trust in the website.
