An SSL certificate is essential for securing your website and improving its credibility. It encrypts the sensitive information transmitted between your website and its users, ensuring that it is protected from potential breaches.
Furthermore, in August 2014, Google announced that it would use HTTPS as a ranking signal. This means that websites that use HTTPS will be ranked higher in search results than those that don’t.
With SiteGround, the process of installing an SSL certificate is straightforward.
This tutorial will cover the steps required to install an SSL certificate on your SiteGround website successfully.
