Is your Website Secure?
Recently Google has announced that they will flag all the unencrypted internet by the end of 2017. This means if your website doesn’t have an SSL Certificate, it will display a ‘Not Secure’ in the URL bar.
What is an SLL Certificate?
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link safeguards all data passed through the web server and browsers remain private and integral.
Without an SSL certificate, a secure connection cannot be established, that means, your company information will not be digitally connected to a cryptographic key.
Do you need to worry About SSL?
- Does your website takes text inputs in the form of login panels, contact forms, search bars, email newsletters etc?
- Is your website on HTTP://?
If it’s a YES to both these questions, you need to install SSL to avoid any risks or warnings. Furthermore, if you don’t implement SSL soon and you need too, your visitors will see a “Not Secure” warning on visiting your site.
How do you Upgrade your Website?
Upgrading your website to include an SSL certificate is a relatively easy process. The change will have to be actioned by the company managing your DNS (Domain Name System) and it will incur a small fee.
