Does SSL Certificate matter ?
« on: January 24, 2021, 03:15:26 AM »
Buying and selling goods and services are becoming more popular each day since smart phones are widely use. But many people are still feeling unease when entering sensitive details such as credit card information in order to buy a product from a website. To increase your consumer confidence when accessing and using your website you could install an SSL certificate to enable HTTPS in your website. With HTTPS the data being sent over the internet is encrypted. This protect your website from packet sniffing and data theft. Therefore, SSL secures ecommerce transactions such as credit card numbers and passwords. Your website will also get a boost in your SERP ranking since most search engines love website that use HTTPS rather than HTTP.



Most hosting providers allow you to use free Secure Socket Layer Certificate from Let's Encrypt, Cloudflare, or other CA but paid SSL certificates are much better than the free ones. Free SSL certificate only verify the domain of the website but some paid SSL certificate verify company and address of the website owner. This boost the credibility and trust for your visitors. In addition paid SSL certificates come with TrustLogo site seal. You can install the seal in your website and it surely increase consumer confidence especially when they enter personal data. There are many CA (Certificate Authorizer) that can issue SSL certificate for you to choose such as Sectigo, Thawte, GeoTrust, RapidSSL, Digicert, AlphaSSL, and GlobalSign. But the most trustworthy Secure Socket Layer CAs are probably Digicert and GlobalSign.

Your website needs any SSL certificate If you're asking for any personal information. But that's not all there is to it. Search engines are cracking down on perceived 'non-secure' websites. Any websites without the SSL certificate will remain http while those with encryption will show https in users' browsers.
