SSL Certificate

What is a SSL and why does your site need one.

What is an SSL certificate?  It is a small file that encrypts communications between the website and visitors connecting with the website it also displays a padlock in the browser address bar to identify a secure connection.

Why would my site need a secure connection.  The first reason is to make the site compliant with Data Protections Act 2003 THIS DAT NEEDS CHECKING. The second reason is to make sure visitors to the website are secure and protected when completing contact forms to ensure the information declare is kept confidential.

Note: The website address will be displayed as HTTPS://www… and non secure sites are displayed as HTTP://www…. The progressive move over to secure sites will probably mean that in the next 5 years or so most if not all site will be secure.  The image below shows the address section of the browser with the padlock and the address starts with HTTPS:// confirming a secure connection.
