What is SSL certificate?
« on: June 19, 2019, 12:20:05 PM »
While looking out for hosting features, I found out that SSL certificate is a necessary one.
Can you guide me on what does SSL certificate mean? Is it necessary to have one? As there are many hosting providers and they ask for an additional cost for SSL certificate so is it worth to buy?

SSL certificate protects your sensitive information while it travels through computer networks.
SSL is used to keep the information sent in the encrypted form so that only the intended recipient can access it.
It helps to secure the website's information like credit card numbers, usernames, passwords, etc. while it gets a transfer from a computer to the server. Thus, the SSL certificate protects your information from hackers and identity thieves.
