    This is a pretty easy thing to GOOGLE

    What is an SSL Certificate?
    SSL Certificates are small data files that digitally bind a cryptographic key to an organization’s details. When installed on a web server, it activates the padlock and the https protocol and allows secure connections from a web server to a browser. Typically, SSL is used to secure credit card transactions, data transfer and logins, and more recently is becoming the norm when securing browsing of social media sites.

    While seeing a lot of regular common connection based hacks these days, it is always good idea to protect your service with SSL encryption. Also web encryption helps to fight middleman attack. Since it is free and there are little impact on hardware (almost no impact on modern hardware as there is dedicated unit for all the encryption job) everyone must use it.

    An SSL Certificate (Secure Sockets Layer), also called a Digital Certificate, creates a secure link between a website and a visitor's browser. If you sell products or services on your website and accept credit cards online, you need an SSL Certificate for website security.

    SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer, as described in full form you can assume that this is all about the security layers, the main advantage of an SSL certificate is, this encrypts your website sensitive data and send to server using SSL technology. SSL protects your sensitive data like passwords, payment gateway data, etc. and another benefits is this is one of the factors of Google Ranking Algorithm.
