4 Reasons Why You Need SSL

What is SSL?

SSL stands for “Secure Sockets Layer”, it’s a network protocol to encrypt data from server to user. It helps prevent malicious attacks that attempt to eavesdrop on conversations.

Why is it important?

If you’re transmitting sensitive data over the web, SSL is essential to add an extra layer of security. For example, customers making purchases know that they can trust your site when they see a padlock icon in your URL bar, indicated that data has been received securely.


SSL’s main benefit is to gain users’ trust – The visual cues (green bar and padlock) indicate that your site is secure and that you have a trust seal from authenticating bodies. This means that visitors trust your website and are more likely to interact and purchase from you. So what are the other benefits?

  1. Instant Setup & Deployment

    Whilst other content delivery networks charge a premium to set up and deploy Custom SSL, we believe this should be available from the get go.
