what is SSL?
The question for most webmasters these days is, what is SSL and why should they use SSL to change their website address and also what are the benefits for them?
To get started, we will introduce you to the SSL protocol. For the sake of clarity, we will explain how this protocol works with an example. When a user enters our website, the user request must pass through the ISP server of the Internet provider before reaching the web server. On the way through the ISP server, people can be on the user’s server path and extract user information.
SSL Sends the information in encrypted form to the ISP server, which prevents the disclosure of the user’s confidential information.

How to get SSL?
There are several ways to get SSL for websites. One way is to use free SSLs. For this purpose, you can search in Google and learn how to activate and configure free SSLs.
Another way is to use paid SSLs, which come in many forms. One of these SSLs is domain validated. One of its advantages is the support and validation of the website in terms of being permanently online by the SSL provider company. There is another type called wild card SSL. It allows you to https your website subdomains as well. We recommend this protocol for websites that have a lot of subdomains. But if you do not use many subdomains, we suggest that you provide a separate domain validated for each of your subdomains.
