1) What is a Secure Certificate?

Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is the secure version of HTTP, the protocol over which data is sent between your browser and the website that you are connected to. The ‘S’ at the end of HTTPS stands for ‘Secure’. It means all communications between your browser and the website are encrypted. HTTPS is a must to protect highly confidential online transactions like online banking and online shopping order forms.

2) How do I know if a website is secure or not?

All browsers will display a sign of security in the address bar, usually this is displayed by a ‘Green Lock’ to the left of the address.

3) How do I get a HTTPS Secure Certificate?

A Secure certificate is a certificate issued by your hosting provider, pricing varies,

A SSL Certificate is a bit like an ID Card for your site, or a guarantee of security between the browser and your hosting company. This is accomplished by creating an SSL certificate. All the major web browsers check with “Certificate Authorities” (CA’s) which also have a copy of that long password and can vouch for you. In order to be recognized by these authorities, you must purchase a certificate.

 

Remember not having an SSL Certificate can greatly impact your online reputation of  your website, and it can also impact on your SEO results as Google is taking greater notice of Secure Certification when ranking search results.  It is also rumoured that in the near  future Google will actually warn users that sites are “Not Secure”, this will have a very negative impact on your website if you don’t have an SSL Cert
