When you’re doing business on the web, you’ll want to make sure bad guys can’t snatch sensitive customer information.

That’s where SSL comes in. Maybe you noticed that extra "s" when you were browsing websites that require giving over sensitive information, like when you were paying bills online.

But where'd that extra "s" come from, and what does it mean? To put it simply, the extra "s" means your connection to that website is secure and encrypted; Any data you enter is safely shared with that website.

The technology that powers that little "s" is called SSL, which stands for “Secure Sockets Layer.” SSL, short for Secure Sockets Layer — is the standard security technology that encrypts communications between the user and the web server.

This encryption ensures that user names, passwords, credit card information and other important data can move from user to server without risk of being intercepted.

Think of it as a secure gateway that sensitive web data can pass through. SSL is used by millions of websites to protect online transactions and customer data. When information is encrypted via SSL, only the intended recipient can understand it.

Keeping your customers’ information safe from harm is absolutely critical. So if your website ever asks customers or visitors for user names, passwords, credit card numbers, contact information, or other personal data, your reputation depends on protecting every detail.
