Secure Socket Layer


Setting up SSL (Secure Socket Layer) for a website involves the following steps:

1. Obtain an SSL certificate from a trusted Certificate Authority (CA) such as GlobalSign, DigiCert, or Let’s Encrypt.

2. Install the SSL certificate on the web server. This may involve configuring the web server software (such as Apache or Nginx) to use the certificate and private key.

3. Update the website to use HTTPS instead of HTTP. This may involve modifying links within the website’s pages, as well as configuring any third-party services (such as content delivery networks or advertising networks) to support HTTPS.

4. Test the SSL configuration to ensure that the website is accessible over HTTPS, and that the SSL certificate is valid and trusted.

5. By using SSL, website visitors can be assured that their connection to the website is secure and encrypted, protecting their personal and financial information from interception or tampering.
