Maintaining a robust online presence has become requisite to succeed in today’s digital-centric landscape. In fact, 2017 saw a record 1.5 billion-plus consumers purchase goods online. The bottom line: if you’re an aspiring entrepreneur or running a small- to medium-sized business, you’re probably not going to make it without an effective website.
You have been told that you need an SSL certificate for your small business website, but it’s just a simple brochure site so you’re not exactly sure why. While in the past many simple websites could get away without SSL, that’s not the case anymore as the world’s most popular browsers push towards universal encryption and a safer web for all, not just online shoppers. So with that in mind, let’s dive into the what, why, where, who, and when of SSL certificates.
Have you ever noticed a green lock icon when you’re shopping around online? Or maybe you’ve seen websites using HTTPS instead of HTTP.
If you have, then you’ve seen SSL encryption at work.
