what is a ssl certificate and why do i need it?

a ssl certificate is a digital record on the web server and is used to encode the communication between you and the server. The encoded Informations are like a sealed letter and cannot be read by others.

Privacy becomes more and more important. With a ssl certificate you can guarantee your customers that their data is transmitted only encrypted. A domain that is available with https seems secure and professional to your customers. Also you should think of a ssl certificate if you want to give your visitors the ability to login to your site or if your visitors are entering sensitive data. If you would like to offer payments on your site an ecrypted transmission is mandatory.
