The Scoop on SSLs

communication keys

SSL Certificates use to be recommended only for websites that collected sensitive personal information, passwords and credit cards, but we are recommending that all sites get an SSL certificate for the following reasons:

  • It meas your site is more secure, not only for your site users, but for you.
  • It means you will make Google happy.  Google has said recently they will give sites with SSLs preference in search rankings.

How do you know if you have an SSL?

  • You will have an address that starts with https: instead of http
  • You will have a lock in your browser address window.

There are SSL certificates that cost money, but there is also a way to apply a free SSL to your site.  If you would like more information contact us today.
