With an SSL certificate, your website can leverage the HTTPS protocol to securely transfer information between point A and B.
This is crucial when transferring sensitive information, like credit card data on checkout pages and Personally Identifiable Information (PII) on login and contact forms.
In addition to security benefits, websites using SSL get better rankings on Google and improved performance through the use of HTTP/2. It's also important to understand that SSL does not protect your website. This guide is designed to show beginners and intermediate users how to deploy a free SSL certificate from Let's Encrypt on their self-hosted websites.
Types of SSL Certificates
Some visitors recognize the additional authenticity and trust offered Extended Validation (EV) and Organization Validated (OV) certificates due to their rigorous validation process.
There are three types of certificates to be familiar with:
Domain Validated (DV)
DV certificates only need the Certificate Authority to verify that the user requesting the certificate owns and administers the domain. Visitors will see a lock icon in their address bar, but no specific information about the owner.
Organization Validated (OV)
OV certificates require a Certificate Authority to confirm the business making the request is registered and legitimate. When visitors click the green lock icon in their browser, the business name is listed.
Extended Validation (EV)
EV certificates require even more documentation for the Certificate Authority to validate the organization. Visitors will see the name of the business inside the address bar (in addition to clicking the lock icon).

Let’s Get An Understanding Of What A SSL Is?

You never know, it could pop up on a pub quiz sometime.
A SSL is used by websites that ask for sensitive information from its visitors, for example credit card information. If you’ve bought anything online before then you have probably used an SSL without realizing it. Thanks to this helpful post, you will now be able to spot when you’re using one.
The majority of browsers will display a padlock when you’re using a SSL website so you know it’s safe and secure.
A SSL will encrypt the information sent from a website to the users browser. This is to prevents information being read, stolen and passed on. Not only this, but the addresses of these websites will start with: https:// rather than: http://
This Is Why Your Website Needs A SSL Certificate!Do you run an ecommerce website that accepts payment? Or perhaps your site asks users to fill out a form using their private information? Also, your site might even require users to create an account using a password? Did you just say ‘Yep, that’s my site’? Then you need a SSL certificate.
In the case of an ecommerce site, a user will be directed to a page that will allow them to fill out their payment information. Once their transaction is successful their information will be stored on the site and can even be passed on to a payment processor, such as PayPal. In this case, it’s very important that the users information is encrypted by a SSL certificate, stopping this information getting into the wrong hands.
Whereas, if your website has forms that asks for personal information or requires users to create a username and password, you should also have a SSL certificate. Otherwise hackers will be able to transmit this information and wrongly use it themselves or pass it on.
If this isn’t enough to show you how important having an SSL certificate is, you will also be missing out on leads. Knowledgeable visitors will notice that your unsecured pages are unsafe will instead turn to your trusted competitors.
So, the benefits your site will receive will be:
Where & How To Get A SSL Secure Website:At Web Design Review we actually purchased our SSL Certificate from 121 Web Design ( Who are also ranked no.2 on our ‘‘Top 10 Web Designers’ countdown).
The process was very easy going,yet fantastic as they helped me get everything set up and took the time to explain everything I need to know. I had very little knowledge about website security. Thanks to 121 I was able to provide this blog post to inform other website owners, based on all that they shared with me.
You too will want to have your SSL certificate issued by a trusted authority that will be able to make your site safe and secure.
I must admit I have not been updating my own blog this year as mucgh as I would have wished and instead I had been busy updating other businesses blogs! You can forget about your own website in the madness and rushing. I just gave my one a facelift. I will be more active in 2018. Thank-you to all this year.
