What is an SSL?
‘SSL’ means Secure Sockets Layer. It will protect your website against internet hackers and attackers when doing e-commerce transactions, such as credit card payments. If not protected, confidential information and data, collected and gather when doing e-commerce transactions, could be hacked and used for illegal intentions.
To avoid the risk of data hacking, an SSL, before proceeding with any online transaction, will first encrypt these confidential data and authenticate them. By putting it another language, so to speak, your sensitive information and data become, at all times, safe and secure from internet hacking.
