You’ve probably discovered that some website URLs begin with HTTP and others with HTTPS. The “s” represents secure encryption, which can only be guaranteed by an SSL certificate. It’s common on websites that ask for sensitive information like credit card numbers, home addresses, and financial information.
Let’s start with the basics:
An SSL certificate encrypts data as it travels from the user’s computer to the target website and back. When a user enters information into your site, SSL ensures that it travels securely from their browser to your web server.
If you’re not sure if your site has SSL, you can easily find out by looking at the URL. If it begins with HTTP, you are not secure; if it begins with HTTPS, your website has an SSL certificate.
Some web browsers have finally started publicly shaming sites that do not use SSL. Different browsers have implemented various indicators to determine whether a site is secure.
For example, Google Chrome will display a ‘not-secure’ warning in the browser bar, whereas Firefox will display a ‘non-secure’ warning.

Your SSL certificate does more than just protect your transactions and your customers’ personal data. It will also aid in the development of trust between you and your consumer base, thereby enhancing the credibility of your company.
How secure would you feel if your browser warned you that a website was “not secure”? Because that is what will be displayed if you do not have an SSL certificate in the upcoming version of Chrome. Do you wish to have that? You, of course, do not.
