In this article, we will detail the advantages of installing SSL certificates on our website or online store. Initially, Internet security certificates were associated with pages in which critical processes were carried out, such as online payments or filling in lengthy forms in which the user had to provide sensitive or confidential information. With the change in regulation on the protection of personal data and the awareness of website owners of the importance of protecting user data, the use of certificates has become widespread on all types of pages. Having an SSL certificate on our website allows us to encrypt the communications that are made between the user and the page, which provides added confidence and security to the visitor,
But what exactly are SSL certificates?
As we have just explained, SSL or Secure Sockets Layer certificates allow the communication between a user and a website to be encrypted so that the exchange of data occurs with greater security. Using this type of encryption will enable us to benefit from all the advantages offered by the HTTPS protocol.o Hypertext Secure Transport Protocol is much more appropriate than the classic HTTP when it comes to exchanging sensitive information such as personal data. The vast majority of web pages request information from the user by filling in forms, registering, and accessing private areas through passwords. With which having certificates of this nature can become a critical point to gain the trust of people who visit our website and reduce their resistance to requesting information, buying a product, or hiring a service.
