SSL is a secure protocol that lets you set up a secure channel between your website and visitors.
SSL certificate is a unique digital signature of your website that is needed to create a secure channel between the client and the server.
The SSL certificate allows to:
- Confirm authenticity of the website and its owner
- Provide encryption of the transmitted data
- Protect against data spoofing when the data is transmitted across the network
HTTPS is a secure protocol that allows encrypting the transmitted data over the SSL protocol.
Starting from January 2017, Firefox and Chrome browsers mark as safe only HTTPS-secured websites.
You can attach a SSL certificate to your uKit website free of charge.
