Why do I need an SSL certificate?

SSL certificates became an absolute necessity in the hosting industry nowadays. There are two major benefits of using an SSL certificate:

  • Encryption of sensitive data like credit card numbers and personal information.
  • Consumer confidence. Your website visitors will know that their data is protected by a secure connection, and your website is vouched for by a trusted Certificate Authority.

SiteGround offers three types of SSL certificates that you can choose from:

  • WildCard
  • EV SSL
  • Let's Encrypt

More information about the different SSL certificates provided by SiteGround can be found here.
