SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer.

It is a protocol that transmits information securely over the internet in an encrypted form. Each website with an SSL certificate can be identified by the 'https' element and a padlock icon in the URL. With 1&1, you can assign an SSL certificate to your domain in order to ensure a secure connection from the user's computer to a browser. This is an especially important element for websites that require personal information.
