You may have heard of secure browsing. Historically, it’s been only necessary for certain types of websites; banks for example must provided a secure service to access your account online. Any ecommerce website which handles payments must provide a secure payment page in the least to prevent your payment information being stolen.
However, Google is now actively encouraging all websites to be secure and this comes in the form of an SSL (secure sockets layer) Certificate. One reason is because it “helps prevent intruders from tampering with the communications between your websites and your visitors browsers. Intruders include intentionally malicious attackers, and legitimate but intrusive companies, such as ISPs or hotels that inject ads into pages.”
Google reports it gives your websites a minor boost in search engine position over non-secure websites so it is worth your consideration.
Prices start from £59.99 for a simple certificate. Please get in touch for more information.
