What is SSL (Secure Socket Layer)?

SSL is an acronym for Secure Socket Layer. It is a protocol that transmits your communications over the Internet in an encrypted form. SSL ensures that the information sent is unchanged and sends it only to the server you intended to send it to. Websites using SSL can be identified by the URL https instead of the unsecured http prefix. E-Commerce sites frequently use SSL technology to safeguard credit card information.
