An SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificate is one of the most important security elements for anyone who owns a website or blog. Indeed, it is responsible for encrypting the information exchanged between a page on a web server and the Internet user, which in turn guarantees the confidentiality of personal and professional data.
Technically speaking, an SSL certificate is a data file that links a cryptographic key to the information of an individual or an organization.
By default, an SSL certificate from Let’s Encrypt is automatically generated for all domain names hosted on PlanetHoster. EV and OV SSL certificates are not free.« Back to Glossary Index
