SSL is stands for Secure Sockets Layer. This is a standard security technology protocol developed for sending sensitive data (Credit card numbers, social insurance numbers, login credentials) securely over the internet. This encrypted link establishes between the server where you host your website, and browser (Firefox, Edge, Chrome, Safari) which your clients are using for surfing your website. This encryption could also be established between a mail server and a mail client (Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird).
With SSL, text or numbers will not be send as plain text, but it will be encrypted in a unique method. For example, a credit card number “1234 4567 6789 8900” when encrypted in a MD5 encryption will give “e0530f1f9c028e058811c7b783244664“. But this MD5 encryption can be decrypted easily. The SSL encryption is very stronger and cannot be easily undergone for decryption.
