1. What is SSL?
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a server and a client. SSL allows sensitive information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, and login credentials to be transmitted securely. Therefore, it provides privacy, critical security and data integrity for both your websites and your users' personal information.
The powerful indicator that your customers can trust you is the padlock icon that appears when your online store is fully encrypted, and they look for it whether they’re on your checkout or not.
Additionally, encrypting your website is good for SEO and could lead to a boost in your search position.

If you’re enabling payment gateway as your payment method, make sure you change your Return & Call Back URL from HTTP > HTTPS.
If you're using Google Webmaster Tools, you need to re-add the property because the domain has changed from HTTP > HTTPS ( guide to add Google Webmaster Tools )
To ensure your online store's content stays secure, make sure you host all of your online store's content ( images, video, link ) on a server that publishes over HTTPS.
If you have sub-domain ( e.g. store.yourdomain.com ), you need to activate the SSL certificate for the sub- domain as well.
If the domain is no longer connected with EasyStore, the SSL certificate will be disabled.
