What is an SSL/TLS Security Certificate
SSL, or Secure Socket Layer, is used to encrypt data transmitted over the Internet to protect the privacy of users and safeguard the integrity of information.
SSL vs. TLS
TLS is actually an advanced version of SSL with updates and modifications for SSL V3, but because SSL security certificates are better known, they are still referred to as such, but the SSL security certificates mentioned in the implementation are the latest TLS.

Increase Site Transaction Rates
SSL encrypts data transmitted on the web, so that hackers who want to intercept the data can only see the messy code that cannot be decrypted, and ensures that the data is not tampered with before it reaches the recipient, which helps build customer trust. You can also consider installing Extended Validation (EV) so that your brand name appears at the top of the URL. Research shows that websites with EV prefixes make customers more likely to complete transactions, including purchases, share personal information, sign up for new services, etc.
Eliminate Web Browser Security Warnings
Google Chrome and Firefox require all web pages to be encrypted with SSL, and any page that does not display https will automatically display an "insecure" warning on the browser, the only solution is to protect your site with SSL.
Improve SEO ranking
Popular search engines improve the search rankings of SSL-enabled pages algorithmically. That makes it an easy and inexpensive way to improve SEO performance.
Many important regulatory and industry standards require that online businesses protect personally identifiable information (PII), personal health information (PHI), credit card numbers, and other sensitive data. Failure to do so can result in fines, loss of privileges, and other non-compliance penalties.
