What is SSL?
Find what you need to protect your website and its visitors from hackers and build trust with major search engines like Google and Bing.
SSL is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, technology to protect your website and its visitors from unwanted intrusion. Here's a definition from SSL.com:
SSL is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browser remain private.
When you visit a website, complete a form and you hit 'submit,' the information you just entered can be intercepted from an unsecured website by a hacker. This "interception" is called a "man-in-the-middle attack." A hacker places a small, undetected listening program on the server hosting a website, capturing the information and then send it back to the hacker. Scary stuff, isn't it?
When you visit an SSL website, your browser will form an encrypted connection with the server, look at the SSL certificate, and then bind together your browser and the server, sending the data to the server. This binding connection is secure so that no one besides you and the website you're submitting the information to can see or access what you type into your browser.
This connection happens instantly, and is now faster than connecting to an unsecured website. This all happens in the background once an SSL certificate is properly installed on your site.
Does My Website Need SSL?
If you want your website to rank competitively and built trust with the search engines, you must make it secure.
In 2014, Google announced it would give a site additional ranking signal in search results if the website has an SSL certificate installed (HTTPS) -- meaning it would appear higher in search results. Google also said they would not penalize the websites that are not secure, at least in search results. While they didn't penalize websites directly in their search algorithm, they did start doing something else to affect the public perception of a non-HTTPS website.
Google announced in September 2016 that beginning in January 2017 they would indicate the security of a website by displaying a message and icon in the address bar of Chrome version 56 and newer. This was the beginning of Google's long-term plan to mark all HTTP pages non-secure.
Google now warns Chrome browser users that the site they are visiting and about to enter their sensitive information into is not secure. In January 2017, Google altered their algorithm to rank HTTPS websites higher on their search results pages. Chrome is currently used by more than 55% of internet users, so an SSL certificate is a must if you wish to build trust with your site visitors and with Google.
