SSL SSL certificates are used by website to protect the data flowing between the website and the user of the website.  For example, you may want to add a SSL certificate to your website to secure your clients because you are selling products and services on your website.  Shopping carts and websites that store credit card data need SSL certificates, as does any site with private or critical data.  For this reason, Nerds On Site offers SSL certificates to our Business Hosting clients.  SSL certificates are not included for free in our hosting package, but are offered for a low monthly fee.
