SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a protocol that shields your online shop or sign-in page. The Secure Sockets Layer certificates, also known as digital certificates, encrypt the sensitive info requested from website visitors like physical address, date of birth, national identity number, driver's license or credit card information, so that no one could use this info for illegal purposes.

Your site visitors can identify a secure website by the ‘https' part at the beginning of the URL, or by the padlock icon in the browser window, or by a special seal on the website.

The SSL certificates offer 256-bit encryption, and include a 10 000 dollar warranty and a site seal for your website. You need to get a dedicated IP.
