Comparison Between AccuWebHosting Paid SSL and Free CloudFlare SSL

The SSL Certificates are small data files that digitally bind a cryptographic key, so the data from the origin of the website to the end user browser is encrypted. It creates an encrypted connection between your web server and your visitor's web browser allowing for private information to be transmitted, without the problems of eavesdropping, data tampering, and message forgery.

The primary reason why SSL is used is to keep sensitive information sent across the Internet encrypted so that only the intended recipient can understand it. This is important because the information you send on the Internet is passed from computer to computer to get to the destination server. 
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. This protects it from hackers and identity thieves.

Web browsers give visual cues, such as a lock icon or a green bar, to make sure visitors know when their connection is secured. This means that they will trust your website more when they see these cues and will be more likely to buy from you. SSL providers will also give you a trust seal that installs more trust in your customers.
