An SSL certificate is a certificate for website. It is used to protect your site and emails from hackers as your site information is encrypted over the internet.
Any computer in between you and the server can see your credit card numbers, usernames and passwords, and other sensitive information if it is not encrypted with an SSL certificate. When an SSL certificate is used, the information becomes unreadable to everyone except for the server you are sending the information to.
