SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the data which users submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they type in their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the safety of your Internet site and shall make it more appealing to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually needed for the SSL installation.
