What is an SSL certificate?

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) It is a certificate you should have on your website to protect your business, your online presence and any information that goes through your site. It is a small data file that digitally bind a cryptographic key, to that organisation. Historically, these were used mainly for e-commerce websites but with data security becoming more challenging Google is insisting every website has one and those that don’t will be flagged as insecure and will be downgraded through Googles Algorithm, meaning lower listing on their searches. It is likely, that this will also able a requirement to comply with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Law commencing on the 25th May 2018.


Once a SSL Certificate is installed, or if installed, you will see a green padlock picture at the left-hand side on the URL bar. This then allows a secure connection from a web server to a browser. Next time you are on your website, see if you can see an SSL.


Design365 has their own department which deals with SSL certificates. Once a company requires one, we install the SSL certificate on a web server. There are several layers that can be applied to a website based around the level of security you require and it's important you choose the right one.


If you would like to get an SSL certificate placed on your website, feel free to contact our Business Development Manager, JT. This can be done via e-mail jt@design365.co.uk or call us on 01325 311 908.
