What is SSL?
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a protocol that provides secure communications on the Internet for such things as web browsing, e-mail, instant messaging, and other data transfers.

The advantage of SSL is added security for your users.

What are Other Benefits of having SSL?

Besides Browsers showing “Not Secure”, there are many other benefits fo having SSL installed on your website. Some are:

1. Trust
The biggest challenge for a website is always creating trust with it’s visitors filling up any form (Lead) or buying a product. Showing “Secure” in Green gives an immediate boost to trust and brand power.

2. SEO
75% of business decisions start from Google Search and being ranked on 1st page of Google has become one of most important marketing tactics in today’s world. Google has announced that going HTTPS — adding a SSL 2048-bit key certificate on your site — will give you a minor ranking boost.

So who wants to leave even a small benefit when it comes to rank on Google?

Google says it has an impact on “fewer than 1% of global queries” but said they “may decide to strengthen” the signal because they want to “encourage all website owners to switch from HTTP to HTTPS to keep everyone safe on the web.”

3. Protecting from Cybercriminals and Phishing
As all information flow between your website and visitors become encrypted it gives high-security levels and saves you from hacking attacks.

Besides protecting you from hacking attacks, it also saves your customers from phishing attacks like collecting information through fake pages. (Especially if you are using Branded SSL)
