An SSL certificate is used to encrypt the traffic sent from the web server hosting a site to the users browser, making it impossible to “sniff” the web traffic for possible password and banking information. Websites are the most common place for SSL certificates however any type of server that uses the secure HTTPS protocol needs to have a valid certificate from a trusted certificate authority in order for it to be trusted by a users browser.
SSL Certificates are now a necessity for any business that has a website. In January 2017, Google began marking any site that accepts password or credit card information as “NOT SECURE” if they don’t have an SSL certificate installed. This also will affect search engine rankings and has been proven that sites that use HTTPS do rank better in Google search results.
