Secure Sockets Layer

SSL Certificate Information

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Certificates are used to secure information sent between web browsers and servers.

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Certificate is a feature that adds an extra (and necessary) level of security to your website. In the age of hackers and personal data scandals, your website security is not something to be sleeping on.

Here are 3 reasons why having an SSL Certificate is a necessary component to your website.

  • Protects you and your clients’ data from information theft
  • Can hinder your website’s lead generation
  • Significantly lowers SEO Ranking

 

How to Identify if Your Website is Secure:

If you’re not sure if your website already has its SSL Certificate, here is a simple way to find out.

  • Bring up your website on Google search browser and take a look at the search bar
  • If your website URL has HTTP:// before it, your website is not secure
  • If your website URL follows HTTPS://, you can breathe, the added S stands for Secure, which means your website has an SSL Certificate

Here is how your URL will look with and without an SSL Certificate: http://yoursite.com vs. https://yoursite.com
