Google's Move Towards a More Secure Web & How It Affects Your Website

HTTP vs HTTPS - Secure Your Website with SSL

Have you ever visited a website and had your browser alert you that this was not a website you should visit? Usually the reasoning behind this alert has something to do with the website's lack of security. Well, in 2017, Google wants to expand on this alert. Starting in January, its popular browser Chrome will start labeling any HTTP website that collects passwords and credit card information as "Not Secure."

HTTP vs. HTTPS


What is HTTP, you ask? You may notice that some websites use HTTP at the beginning of their domain in the address bar of your browser, while others use HTTPS (like ours). That "S" means that the website is secure - and, in fact, that's what it stands for! HTTPS, or Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure, allows for encrypted communication over a computer network. This is achieved using a Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL certificate. Basically, adding an SSL certificate to your website means keeping things like your customers' passwords and credit card information safe.

What This Means For You


If you have a website, you should consider adding an SSL certificate to secure it sooner rather than later. If your website does any kind of e-commerce or allows customers to create an account, then you definitely need to add an SSL certificate to your website. This will keep your customers' information secure and allow them to trust your website. SSL certificates are a cheap and easy way to ensure your website's - and your customers' - security.
