Secure Web Sites & SSL Certificates are becoming more and more important.
What is an SSL Certificate?
SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer and is a method of ensuring that the website you go to is the website you think it is – not pretending, or spoofing, your browser into going to a different website.
The idea is that when you put in your details into a form, or credit card details into a form you can be sure (or pretty sure) that your details are secure AND going to the right person.
