What is an SSL Certificate?
An SSL Certificate is a digital certificate that is used to encrypt communication between a website and a visitor‘s web browser. When everything is operating correctly it’s not something the average user is aware of. But when there is a problem such as when the certificate has expired, browsers will display full-page error screens instead of your website when a user attempts to access it.
