SSL Certificates for your website
What is SSL?
Secure Sockets Layer that at the most basic level provides 128-bit encryption between the website visitor’s computer session and the server your site is hosted on. So this means that anyone on the internet trying to read and intercept data exchanged between the web surfer’s computer and the server are ‘scrambled’ in a complex way such that the information is unreadable and useless. The data is scrambled and sent out across the internet then descrambled at the other end and processed.
SSL traditionally reserved for ecommerce sites or sites that exchange personal information is now being recommended for all websites. In 2017 Google started to identify sites that do not have an SSL certificate installed with an before the website url address which directs users to view the site information. When the user clicks for more information it states that the website is not secure so users should not submit any personal information to the site.
As a best practice Henderson Digital Marketing is promoting that an SSL certificate be purchased on all sites and will be mandatory on all new websites we build.
The annual costs for SSL certificates can vary.
