SSL CERTIFICATION & YOUR WEBSITE

SSL CERTIFICATION & YOUR WEBSITE

There is nothing new about registering an SSL certificate for websites. The practice has not only become more popular across the web, but is starting to become somewhat of a necessity in the online world.

These days, most websites have them, while certain others are absolutely expected to. Is your website following suite? What are they? Why are they used? And what does having SSL certification mean for your website?

WHAT IS AN SSL CERTIFICATE?

Think of it as a badge of trustworthiness for your website, something that tells your visitor that your site is correctly encrypted and secure. Something that, if need be, can tell the visitor who the website owner is.

You can tell whether or not a site has an SSL certificate by looking at the domain name: if it starts with HTTPS, it has one, if it starts with HTTP, it doesn’t. Some browsers, like Google Chrome, show an item of a lock in the address bar as well to show you at a glance whether the site is secure or not.

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR WEBSITE VISITORS

For your visitors, this means peace of mind in knowing that they are surfing a secure site, which is all the more important if you are selling online, requiring your visitors to enter in private information that they need to know will be secure, with the same being true for websites where users need to log in using their own credentials.

This fosters trust in your visitors, and even helps improve organic SEO rankings on the websites that have them.
