How important is SSL for my websites? Do I really require one?
The answer is simply yes, and big brother Google has started flagging websites without SSL and enforcing HTTPS. Since the majority of the web traffic is generated by Google, and their flagging will surely matter a lot. Hence, an SSL / HTTPS more than important now. It’s almost going to be mandatory.
The latest news from Google is that “Google will identify insecure sites in the Chrome browser beginning August 2018“.
What is SSL?
SSL is an acronym for secure sockets layer. SSL certificates are the backbone of website security. We turn to the internet for every little thing. It seems impossible to stay away from the internet, with this dominating trend, online security has become a necessity.
There are 100’s if not 1000’s of website and contents talking about SSL and how important it is. I particularly loved this article from Symantec. Despite so many articles and information available about the importance of SSL, many end-users and IT managers have delayed the adoption due to the price of the certificates and the complexity of implementation. If you haven’t read my previous blog on why you need a professional website, please read it.
In this blog, I would like to highlight two major services we at Ci CORP FZE have launched to tackle these issues. For those website owners or small business owners who think affordability is the main concern, we have included a FREE SSL in our AED 1 Hosting. Just migrating to our powerful hosting infrastructure will automatically enroll your website for FREE DOMAIN SSL. (DV Certificates)
