An SSL Certificate gives your website an added layer of security. SSL certificates are added to websites to enhance the security by encrypting data so it can’t be taken and used by unauthorised external sources. SSL certificates are essential for websites that take online payment. However, they are now a required feature for any form of website as they are also a ranking factor on Google. If a website doesn’t have an SSL certificate, it will show up saying the site is untrustworthy or not secure. This can put off users trying to visit your website.
SSL certificates come as part of our hosting package and we will annually update this for you, without you having to worry about it. You can find out more about hosting here.
