BULLETPROOF SSL

HTML + SSL = HTTPS

 

 

As you may be aware, Google has made a large push to have every website add an extra layer of security to every website on the internet regardless of what you do with it.  The notifications that your website is not secure are becoming more an more noticeable through certain web browsers such as Google Chrome and Firefox.  As of July 2018, websites that do not have an SSL certificate now show "NOT SECURE" in the url next to your website.

You should understand that your website is no less secure than it was before these notices.

 

This is an additional layer that Google wants the world to have on every website.

 

There are benefits to having your site more secure.  Google has said it will reward you as a factor in your search rankings by using an SSL certificate for your website.  It will also remove the current browser warnings that are popping up removing concern from your users.

 


What is SSL?

 

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral. SSL is an industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their online transactions with their customers.  To be able to create an SSL connection a web server requires an SSL Certificate. When you choose to activate SSL on your website you will be prompted to complete several questions about the identity of your website and your company (REM will handle this).  This is what ultimately puts an https:// in front of your website address.

 

If you would like to move forward, REM can handle purchasing and installing the certificate for your website.  Please let us know if you would like to proceed and we can take care of setting it up for you.
