Hello mali,

SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is a protocol used for secure connections between website users and a server. Ever notice a website where the url is https instead of just http? That https stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure). This allows for secure communication between a website and it's users.

Here is a link to the full article titled "Do I Need SSL for My Website?," it provides more specific information, and can help you determine whether you need one or not.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,
