When you launch your website, you must contact SSL certificate providers for the SSL certificate. It secures all the information that transferred between the user browser and the server with the use of the secured channel. Some discreet client details like account login, personal detail and credit card detail will be protected from MITM i.e. man in the middle. The most important use is the feature, which enables the green padlock icon & HTTP protection.
