SSL on Every Website
On today’s web, every website needs to be HTTPS secure through an SSL certificate. While there’s no high-and-mighty authority enforcing this as a requirement out there in cyberspace … you’ll notice VERY few websites that are not HTTPS in 2022. Why? Over the last 5-years search engines have rigorously cracked down on perceived non-secure websites, including warning visitors that the website they are about to interact with may not be secure. Enforcing SSL is not only about securely transmitting information by utilizing data encryption, it’s about increasing trust on the Internet more broadly – and the efforts have been successful. Nowadays visitors treat non-HTTPS websites with significant caution, even if they are not collecting any personal information, and this is on top of the penalization levied by search engines to page rank because.
With 25% off ALL our SSL Certificates – including entry level options such as Rapid SSL DV e and Sectigo PositiveSSL which both regularly retail under $25 USD as well as Enterprise suitable OV and EV options – there is no better time to get an SSL certificate. The 1-year term doesn’t start until your SSL certificate is installed on your website, so you can purchase it now and install it whenever you’re ready.
Search engines are cracking down on perceived ‘non-secure’ websites. Any websites without the SSL certificate will remain http while those with encryption will show https in users’ browsers. Chrome, Firefox and other browsers have began issuing warnings that non-https sites are insecure. Additionally, Google recently announced SSL is a ranking signal, so unless you have SSL your site will be harder to find, impacting on your traffic and revenue.
