SSL Certificates

Video Summary

An SSL, or Secure Sockets Layer, certificate is issued by a trusted authority for a specific domain or subdomain. It verifies that a secure page is properly encrypted, ensuring that all information passed between a user and the site is private. Having an encrypted store helps boost your conversion rate by increasing shopper confidence. BigCommerce gives you three options for getting an SSL certificate for your custom domain. You can use our free dedicated SSL certificate, purchase an SSL certificate through BigCommerce, or for select plans install a third-party SSL certificate.
