Internet security is a really big deal nowadays, as you’re no doubt aware from all the high profile news coverage the topic receives. The Internet is involved in more and more areas of our everyday lives as time goes on, and inevitably this gives the hackers and cybercriminals more reason to target our online lives.
This is why online security measures, such as implementing SSL (Secure Socket Layer), have become so much more important in recent years.
In short, using SSL on your website means that everything you and your customers do is encrypted, rather than sitting there in plain text just waiting for a hacker to come along. Implementing SSL has long been standard practice for sites dealing with financial details, but its use on all sites is now highly recommended.
You may even have noticed the increasing use of SSL yourself, if you’ve noted the use of “https://” at the beginning of web addresses instead of the less secure “http://”. Google is noticing too, and it’s now becoming apparent that the search giant is ranking secure websites more highly than those yet to implement SSL.
Therefore, if you want to see your site perform to the best of its ability, implementing SSL is now an essential and not a luxury.
Thankfully, adding SSL to your site is neither especially complicated nor expensive. At WebHosts R Us, we offer SSL solutions from GeoTrust, the second largest certificate provider worldwide, and Sectigo, who offer a range of different SSL options including the economical and popular Sectigo Essential Wildcard certificate.
