Concerned about your site not loading https:// please read on.:


If your website does not collect sensitive data, like credit card numbers or customer shopping cart data, you may not have needed an SSL certificate in the past. However, with new browser notifications enforced by Google, it is important to be aware that without an SSL certificate your website will not load via HTTPS. This effects your Google Search Rankings and links from such searches depending on the web browser.


What is an SSL Certificate?

SSL Certificates are small data files that digitally bind a cryptographic-key installed on your web server that activates the padlock and the https protocol that allows secure connections from your web server to your site visitor's browser (see picture).


Do I really need an SSL Certificate?

It is probably not absolutely critical (at this time) unless your site is a shopping cart site or CMS website such as WordPress.  However, your visitors may be warned via a browser pop-up that your site is not secure without a validate SSL certificate. Google does favor sites that have SSL ceritificates in place and therefore a "not secure" pop-up could be bad for business.  However, it is important to note that web sites that do not have SSL certificates are not dangerous or infected, but rather the data being transmitted is just not encryted and usually that data is irrelvant anyways. 


What should I do now?

If you are not sure if your web site already has a Secure Socket Layer installed or if you would like us to review and check your website  contact us.


No worries - just let us know!
