Why an SSL Certificate is Important to Your Website

An SSL Certificate encrypts the data between your server and the end user. Only the end user has the key to decrypt the data, making data sent from your site almost impossible for anyone else to decipher. SSLs are becoming more and more essential—sites with SSL certificates are now rewarded by Google while sites without show as “not secure” within Chrome and other browsers.

SSL encryption ensures that important data such as usernames, passwords, and credit card information is sent from the user to the site without the risk of interception. The main purpose of SSL is to provide secure online banking transactions, logins and data transfers that are useful for all manner of websites. It’s commonly used for these purposes but has others as well. SSL encryption:

  • Keeps data secure between servers, safe from the hands of hackers.
  • Builds and enhances customer trust and potentially improve conversion rates.
  • Ensures Google and other search engines don’t mark your site as unsafe.

What does PremiumDNS do?

The easiest way to think of DNS is as the route to your site, and how it is followed by a computer. PremiumDNS involves pointing your domain to premium nameservers, and setting up your records on these nameservers. This allows for improved site availability, faster performance, and minimal security gaps. Learn more about the purpose and benefits of DNS and PremiumDNS.
