Website Security, and why you NEED it …
Every day the internet is evolving and the options for better online protection increases, but so does the skills and capability of hackers and cybercriminals. As companies and organizations offer more online services and transactions, internet security becomes both a priority and a necessity for their online transactions.
What can you do?
An SSL certificate is the best and safest way to protect your client’s sensitive information online. When your website displays an HTTPS address, you know that your website is secure and your customers can browse with absolute peace of mind. But if it doesn’t, you might be loosing potential customers who are feeling unsafe on your website, and Google also notices.
What is an SSL Certificate?
Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL for short, is a global standard security technology that enables encrypted communication between a web browser and a web server. Having an SSL ensures that the sensitive data of your website’s visitors will be transferred over a secure network.
How do you get one?
Most business owners have delayed their adoption due to the high price of the certificates and the complexity of the installation. Today, getting an SSL certificate is much easier with Blue Sphynx, because we can now generate and quickly install an SSL certificate at an affordable price, for our existing web hosting clients.
The benefits of having an SSL Certificate
Increase your site’s security
An SSL certificate will protect the sensitive data transmitted from and to your website such as Login details, Signups, Addresses and Payment or Personal information. Your SSL Certificate will encrypt the connection and help protect your visitors’ data from being misused by attackers.
Secure your Subdomains
Our SSL certificate allows you to not only secure your main site but also all its subdomains such as blog.mydomain.co.za or shop.mydomain.co.za with one single SSL certificate. That’s very useful if you are a business owner or if you manage large websites with several subdomains.
Gain the trust of your customers
A great benefit of SSL certificates is the fact that they will help you gain your visitors’ trust. Your website will be displayed with a security padlock in the address bar of the browser. This will indicate that the connection is secure and will show your website’s visitors that you take their privacy seriously. If your website doesn’t have a certificate, some browsers may label it as unsafe.
Boost your Google Ranking
Another great benefit of having an SSL certificate installed is the impact it has on your Google Ranking! Imagine the improvement in rankings that your site will get. In line with their HTTPS everywhere initiative, Google gives websites with encrypted connections a slight rankings boost. Although the boost may not be substantial, having an SSL will give you an advantage over your competitors who don’t have a certificates yet
