SSL or Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that helps protect the privacy of communications between a user’s browser and a website. In theory, SSL should protect data from being intercepted by third parties, but in practice it is not always 100% effective.
That’s because not all websites support SSL, and even those that do may not be using the best security practices.
SSL is not free on Weebly, but there are a few ways to get around that. One option is to use a third-party SSL provider, such as StartSSL. StartSSL offers a free trial, and you can also pay for their premium service which offers higher security levels.
Alternatively, you can install an SSL certificate on your own server. This is a more involved process, but it can be worth it if you want the highest level of security possible.
