SSL and HTTPS at a glance

The prerequisite for encryption with SSL is an SSL certificate that you connect to a domain. With this certificate your website will be confirmed by a trustworthy institution. The SSL certificate enables an encrypted HTTPS connection between your website and your visitors' browsers. This ensures secure and encrypted data transmission. Third parties cannot read the data transmitted in this way.
