Digital certificates serve as the backbone of internet security. Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates, sometimes called digital certificates, are used to establish an encrypted connection between a browser or user’s computer and a server or website. The SSL connection protects sensitive data, such as credit card information, exchanged during each visit, which is called a session, from being intercepted by non-authorized parties.
Why would I need an SSL Certificate?
An SSL Certificate protects your visitor’s sensitive information such as credit card information, usernames, passwords etc or simply when they fill out a form on your website.
Keeps data secure between visitors and your web page.
Increases your Google Rankings.
Builds/Enhances customer trust.
Improves conversion rates.
Google & SSL
Google has been contacting webmasters and telling them that Chrome will mark normal HTTP pages that contain regular Contact forms as ‘NOT SECURE’.
So from a ranking perspective, Google will only show your site in their results if you have an SSL Certificate in place.
What Do I Need To Do?
SSL Certificates are not as expensive as they were 2 or 3 years ago, However, there is still a piece of work in making sure your website operates correctly with the new security in place.
We can provide you with an SSL Certificate and ensure a seamless crossover from HTTP to HTTPS.
