An SSL certificate encrypts all information transmitted to and from your website, ensuring it is protected from third parties attempting to access it.

Better ranking with Google

Google ranks websites with SSL higher compared to sites without security certification. Professionally validated sites can receive up to 6% higher rankings in search results!

Why you need SSL

Browsers like Google Chrome mark pages without SSL encryption as not secure. This can have a negative effect on the trustworthiness of your website. If you have an SSL certificate, your site’s URL will start with the prefix “https” and a green padlock icon will be displayed in the browser bar, showing your visitors your site is secure and their data is safe. Pages that are protected with SSL receive better search engine rankings, and are more likely to be trusted by visitors.
