SSL Certificates

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. It provides a high level of security for your website and is essential if you are dealing in areas such as eCommerce or the capture of personal information on your website.  A website is enabled with SSL when the page you are looking at starts with https instead of http.  The 'S' tells us the site is secure and therefore takes sensitive data, like credit card details or login information transferred through the website and encrypts the information to allow only an authorised server to read the information.

Additionally, Google is now ranking sites with SSL higher than those without.  If you are looking to increase your Google ranking, then an SSL certificate could well be something of importance to your rankings.

Things to consider
As part of an update to Google Chrome, websites that are still running without an SSL certificate, and are therefore insecure, will display warnings when a user fills in ANY input field type on an insecure web page (such as a contact form) and a warning for ALL insecure web pages when browsing via incognito mode.
You will require a dedicated IP address assigned to your web hosting account if you wish to have an SSL Certificate. The reason for this requirement is that SSL certificates are bound by IP address to the protected domain name.
Extended Validation (EV) SSL certificates are a type of SSL certificate which are intended to give users more confidence in who you are (the legal entity who has applied for the ssl certificate) and that you control/own your web site. Specifically, an Extended Validation (EV) SSL certificate assures your users that they are really viewing your web site, and not an impostor site that looks exactly like yours.
