SSL is a software installed on the server where your website is hosted that encrypts information sent over the internet. This verification and encryption software does have a cost, which can range between $10 and $1,500 per year. The price you pay for SSL Certificates will depend on a number of factors including who you purchase the SSL Certificate from, whether you are sharing the certificate with another user, and the level of security you choose.
