An SSL Certificate

Essential Security for Google and your users

What is an SSL certificate?

An SSL Certificate (Secure Sockets Layer) is encryption technology, originally created back in the 1990s.

An SSL Certificate provides an encrypted connection between the users web browser and the website server, to keep private information secure.

These are now pretty much required on all websites, whereas originally they were common on e-Commerce stores only, as customers were filling in private order information. Consumers will now expect to see this type of security (indicated in most browsers as safe or secure) and Google is looking for this as they credit you with a small ranking boost.

All of our hosting and many others, will offer an SSL certificate as standard. There is no reason not to, they are very low-cost if you don’t have one. Your website may require a small amount of work to deliver assets ‘https://’ but we can help with that – even if the site wasn’t built by us or on our hosting.

So why get an SSL?

Google SEO Ranking Benefits

Google give your Search Engine Optimisation a small ranking boost if you use an SSL certificate. While it’s fairly small, if Google is making this a focus, we all need to take note.

Increased Data Protection

An SSL certificate protects site data, and the data of anyone visiting. Most users nowadays will notice if you don't have one and you could potentially lose security-conscious buyers.

A Certificate for E-Commerce

If you have e-Commerce or a membership site, an SSL certificate is a must-have. It means that any transactions are private and protected. Inspire confidence to your users.

Having an SSL is cheaper than ever

An SSL certificate will come as standard more often then not these days. Converting your site to be compatible should also be a fairly east process unless the site is extremely outdated.
