Do you need an SSL certificate?
If you have an e-commerce website the answer is definitely YES -- you need an SSL certificate!
Each website that is used for gathering and transmitting customer's information should use an SSL certificate in order to guarantee the safety of this information.
Most Internet users expect any personal information they provide via the Internet to remain confidential and integral. Many people will never buy your products or services online unless they are sure that their details will be secure. The SSL certificate is the only way to secure your online transactions and to show your customers that you really value the confidentiality of their data. Using an SSL certificate is essential if you wish to have a truly successful e-commerce website.
Which SSL certificate issuer should I use?
This decision depends very much on your required level of security, the volume of your transactions and, of course, on your budget.
