Not sure what the process is in HostGator to add an SSL certificate? Here’s your 7-step process
An SSL certificate enables encrypted data to transmit between two parties — typically, a user’s browser and the website’s server. It removes the “Not Secure” warning message and displays a padlock symbol in front of the domain name in the address bar. While understanding what an SSL certificate does is great, it’s another thing entirely to understand how to install an SSL certificate in HostGator so you can actually use one.
