Add an SSL Certificate
You can add an SSL certificate in your Website Builder site to provide visitors with a secure connection when they submit information, such as payment or contact details. After your SSL is issued, you can select which pages you want to secure.
You can also display a Site Seal on your website that lets your visitors know the information they send through your site is secure.
Pages using the SSL certificate will use HTTPS instead of HTTP in your Web browser's address bar. HTTPS is the secured version of the HTTP protocol.
