Is there another certificate used instead of the SSL certificate?
SSL certificate is still used. In fact, it has increased its importance compared to past times. Now Google considers whether a site has a security certificate as a signal.
A certificate other than the SSL certificate is not used. The SSL certificate is considered as proof that the site is reliable and there is no certificate used in place of this certificate.
Especially if you have a site in the e-commerce industry, we strongly recommend that you use SSL certificate. Google says this, not us
