An SSL certificate is a website security certificate.
In order for any data submitted through a webpage to reach its destination, it has to be sent over the internet. Without secure SSL certificates, it’s possible for even an inexperienced hacker to intercept that data.
One of the major problems with buying an SSL certificate cheap is that you risk getting one that isn’t recognized by browsers. If the user’s browser doesn’t recognize the company that issued your security certificate, SSL 128 bit encryption isn’t going to matter. It might exist, but if a browser doesn’t trust it, your user won’t either.
