Is it worth having an SSL Certificate

Some of you may ask what an SSL certificate is? SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer and, in short, it’s the standard technology for keeping an internet connection secure and safeguarding any sensitive data that is being sent between two systems, preventing criminals from gathering your data.
