SSL is the generally accepted standard on the Internet (HTTPS) used for secure communications between users and web servers. SSL data is securely encrypted to prevent leakage and / or spoofing. The use of SSL ensures that customers and companies can be confident that their personal information (such as credit card numbers) is securely encrypted and does not fall into the hands of intruders.

Protecting sites with SSL certificates makes it possible to encrypt all information between the site and the client`s computer.
Do not forget that a dedicated IP-address is required for the SSL-certificate to work.
