Why an SSL certificate is important to your website
SSL encryption addresses a number of things on your website. These include:
- Keeping data secure between servers, safe from the hands of hackers.
- Building and enhancing customer trust, and can also improve conversion rates.
- Ensuring Google and other search engines don’t mark your site as unsafe.
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 them 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 an 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.
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. You also get 100% DNS uptime guaranteed. Learn more about the purpose and benefits of DNS and PremiumDNS.
