Why have an SSL installed on your website

SSL sends information across the Internet encrypted so that only the intended recipient can understand it. SSL establishes a secure connection between your visitor’s browser and your webshop. It allows you to send private and sensitive information, such as payment credentials, across the internet without having to worry about the problems of eavesdropping, data tampering, and message forgery.

Besides the obvious reason why you should use an SSL certificate to protect your visitor’s data, it has other benefits. Although the opinions differ, it is said that having an SSL certificate boosts your SEO. In 2014 Google announced that it will begin to give a ranking boost to SSL-secured websites.

SSL also protects against phishing. Phishing emails usually contain a link to the criminal’s website, by impersonating your website. When your using SSL it’s practically impossible for them to impersonate your site perfectly.
