Something important to many users is making sure their information is safe. Also a concern for those who own a website is keeping their customers information secure. Especially if there are payment transactions taking place or people are logging into the site. To keep that information safe, you need an SSL certificate for your site. Even if you’re not transmitting sensitive information, Google rankings are improved if your site is using SSL. When you see HTTPS (see photo) that means the site is using an SSL certificate. So to simply state it, HTTPS is the same as SSL.
HTTPS makes sure that the information being sent between the user and the website are encrypted and safely sent so no one else can steal that information while it is being sent. If your website takes payments, you need to be sure it is PCI compliant. One requirement for your site to be PCI compliant is an SSL certificate. It used to be that SSL certificates were expensive. But thanks to Let’s Encrypt, that has all changed.
So starting now, when you host your site with Web Unraveling, a FREE Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate will be installed on your site!
