In order to implement SSL encryption for your website, you will need to create an SSL certificate. These can be bought from a number of different providers, but can also be obtained for free from certain providers such as Cloudflare. Once you have bought and activated your SSL certificate, you will need to install the certificate in your website through your hosting provider. This will then allow you to update your website to use the HTTPS protocol, meaning data will be exchanged in a more secure way between the website and the user.
