What is a secure server?

When a visitor sends information to your site, for example, by filling out a form, the secure server feature encrypts that information while it is in transit to your site. This keeps the information safe from any potential prying eyes.

This is especially useful when users are sending you sensitive data, such as credit card numbers.
