What is SSL certificate ?
SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer.to understand SSL ,let us first understand the difference between HTTP and HTTPS.
HTTP – whenever data transfer occurs.suppose i visited a website,or type anything in the search bar.that data transfer happens to the server,it will be in plane text.meaning someone in the middle can read it by interrupting it.
HTTPS – At the same time,if there is HTTPS,then it will be transfer to the encrypted format,then no one can read it in between.
So here SSL certificate basically authenticates the identity of the website that it is the same website and there has been no data transferring in between and all encrypted format transfer is done which secure website and user data.it is also good for SEO and trust factor.
