What is SSL? SSL is a way to encrypt the data that is transferred between your WordPress website and your visitors. This means that only the intended recipient is able to decipher the data. People or computers who intercept the data cannot see the original content of that data.
In addition to the security mentioned above, SSL certificates of the type ‘Extended Validation’ offer additional validation of the owner of the website. This is shown by a green address bar in the web browsers.
Using SSL will encrypt the data transferred between you and your visitors and ensures that both sender and recipient can validate each other’s identities. If you order an EV certificate your visitors will also be able to verify you as the owner of the website.

The use of a SSL certificate is not compatible with our CDN
Because we use the SPDY technology in our SSL implementation a CDN is unnecessary. Browsers load all static assets in one stream, so the positive effect of having multiple host names for your static assets are no longer applicable.
