Extended SSL is the highest class of SSL available today and lends more credibility to your website compared to a free or standard SSL Certificate. Only an Extended SSL activates the green address bar and displays your business name in the browser interface. These prominent security indicators have a proven effect: studies have shown that potential customers frequently look for a green address bar when shopping online and are more likely to consider a website untrustworthy without one.
SSL Certificates activate the built in security functionality of web servers, browsers and applications to encrypt sensitive data.
When installed on a web server, connections between a user's browser and your website are secured and less likely to be intercepted.
Use of an SSL certificate ensures customers and visitors to your site will know that their browsing session is safe, and that payment details and personal information are secure and encrypted.
Installing an SSL Certificate now has the added benefit of helping to increase your potential Google ranking.
Google recently introduced https:// as a ranking signal and so when your site is indexed by Google (and other search engines) having an SSL Certificate is a point in your favour.
