Here Is The Skinny On SSL

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer and is a level of security for your website similar to locking your front door. You wouldn’t want strangers wandering in and taking things without you knowing about it. Similarly, you don’t want a hacker sneaking in to take your customer’s information without your consent. While you are in business (or maybe blogging?) to sell items, generate leads, and have oodles of traffic to your site, you are NOT on your site daily checking every IP Address looking at your information.

IP Addresses

What is an IP Address, you might ask? It’s essentially your internet home address or location (ie: 123 Main Street, Anytown, USA). When you log on to your browser (Safari, Chrome, Firefox, etc.), the network you are using has an address. So, if you are logging in at home it’s one set of numbers. If you’re at the coffee shop working, it’s a different set. And if you’re in Russia trying to hack into sites for sensitive information, you are at a completely different set of numbers. We don’t like those numbers and as such are trying to help all of you, our friends, protect your site(s) against those bad IP Addresses.

Best Protection For Your Visitors

An SSL Certificate is what you need to best protect your customers’ private information. Their name, address, phone & email are all open to the public if you don’t have the green lock showing your site is safe. In fact, if you don’t have this SSL Certificate, Google will put up a notification to your potential customer warning them that it’s not secure to visit your site. Similar to being warned by your Mom not to walk down a dark alley at night in Las Vegas!
