What is a SSL Certificate
Article content

A Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate is now required on a website as browers will show a site as unsafe if it does not find one. This is for the protection of not only your site but also for people who wish to shop on your site, or input their details for another reason. For instance google chrome now shows a padlock symbol in the top left of the URL area as shown below, if there was no SSL shown, then it would be shown as Not Secure. A site setup correctly will always redirect to a HTTPS: instead of HTTP: indicating secure also.
