SSL (or Secure Sockets Layer) certificates reduce your risk by encrypting sensitive data on your website so that it’s safe from hackers, and can only be accessed by those who are authorized.

Both HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) and HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) are protocols to transfer information between the client computer (usually a browser) and the server (website that is being accessed).
