SSL (Secure Socket Layer) Certificates – HTTPS://
Data security is a top priority these days, so search engines assess how seriously websites take the security of their users’ data. Google’s search algorithm ranks websites that use a secure data transfer protocol (HTTPS) higher and penalises those with an insecure website.
The HTTPS connection creates a secure channel between your website’s server and your visitor’s machine, which means that the data transmitted is secure. HTTPS was first used by e-commerce shops to keep their customers’ addresses and credit card information safe. Nowadays, every website is expected to use HTTPS, even if they do not collect such sensitive data.
Benefits of having an HTTPS-enabled website (SSL certificate) include:
• Trust from your customers
• Faster website speed because HTTP/2 protocol favours HTTPS websites
• Increased analytics data
• Access to tools that required this increased security, such as from Google Maps
Don’t put off switching to an HTTPS website. If you delay, your business risks being affected by an increasing number of serious problems. These days, enabling HTTPS is essential for every business if you value being visible and trusted online by potential customers.
