An SSL Certificate is an internet security technique that encrypts sensitive information sent between your customer's web browser and your website. Only recognised certificate authorities, such as Comodo and Thawte, can issue an SSL certificate. This is then unique to your website and will be verified by your customer's web browser each time your website is accessed. Evidence of an SSL Certificate on a website is characterised by the locked padlock symbol in the address bar or bottom right of a web browser.
