Secure Website (SSL)

September 5th 2019

What is SSL?

SSL certificates create an encrypted connection and establish trust. One of the most important components of website is creating a trusted environment where potential visitors feel confident in accessing your website. SSL certificates create a foundation of trust by establishing a secure connection. To assure visitors their connection is secure, browsers provide special visual cues that we call EV indicators — anything from a green padlock to branded URL bar that says ‘Secure’.

What if I don’t have SSL on my website?

If you do not have an active SSL on your website, you are putting your website visitors at risk!

Having an SSL is essential if your visitors are inputting sensitive details like their password, or their bank card information. But equally, it protects you from website attacks: this is when a third party (i.e. a hacker) is intercepting transmissions between two clients.

You may not see this as a major issue. However, without SSL encryption, a hacker can display a fake webpage.
Which then links on this false site could download something malicious onto your computer, like a virus.
