Do You Need an SSL Certificate to Ensure Your Website is Secure?

 

https://While you may not have heard about an SSL Certificate, you probably have seen it plenty of times: it’s when a URL starts with https instead of just http. That “s” on the end is important to the safety and security of your site. SSL Certificates are small data files that allow secure connections from a web server to a browser. It’s always there when a site uses credit cards, transfers data, or has a login. Now, it’s being implemented regardless of whether a site has a shopping cart. One of the reasons for that is because starting in July 2018, Google’s Chrome browser will start marking non-HTTPS sites as “not secure.” This could be a turn-off for potential customers that your business wants to attract! Read more about this change, and what Higher Images can do to ensure your site has an SSL certificate, in this security article from our Chief Technology Officer, Craig Hodgkins.
