19 March 2023SEO and Online Presence / Web Hosting / Website Tips and TricksIn today’s digital age, online security is of utmost importance. SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a technology that provides a secure connection between a web server and a user’s web browser, ensuring that any data transmitted between them remains encrypted and protected from unauthorized access. In this article, we will delve into what SSL is and why it’s important for website owners and users. What is SSL? SSL is a security protocol that establishes a secure and encrypted connection between a web server and a user’s browser. SSL ensures that all data exchanged between the two parties remains private and secure. SSL uses a combination of asymmetric and symmetric encryption to protect data in transit. Asymmetric encryption is used to establish a secure connection between the two parties, while symmetric encryption is used to encrypt and decrypt data transmitted between them. SSL is commonly used to secure online transactions, such as e-commerce transactions, online banking, and sensitive data transmissions. SSL is also used to protect sensitive information, such as login credentials, credit card numbers, and personal information, from unauthorized access. Why is SSL important? SSL is important for several reasons, including: Data protection: SSL ensures that data transmitted between a web server and a user’s browser is encrypted and protected from unauthorized access. This is particularly important for websites that deal with sensitive data, such as e-commerce sites, online banking, and healthcare websites. Authentication: SSL provides authentication, ensuring that the user is communicating with the intended website and not an imposter or malicious website. SSL certificates are issued by trusted third-party Certificate Authorities (CAs) that verify the identity of the website owner and provide assurance to users that they are interacting with a legitimate website. Search engine ranking: Google has made it clear that SSL is a ranking factor in its search algorithm. Websites that use SSL are given a higher ranking in search results than those that do not. This means that using SSL can improve your website’s visibility and attract more visitors. Trust and credibility: Using SSL provides users with a sense of trust and credibility. It shows that website owners take security seriously and are committed to protecting their users’ data. This can help build customer loyalty and attract new customers. In conclusion, SSL is a critical technology for protecting sensitive data and ensuring secure online transactions. Website owners who use SSL demonstrate their commitment to security, which can help build trust and credibility with their users. Users should also look for SSL when interacting with websites that deal with sensitive information. Overall, SSL is an essential component of online security and should be used by all website owners who care about the privacy and security of their users’ data. Closing Statements: SSL Certificates are one of the most important, and unknown part of Web Designing that a lot of people don’t take into account the meaning or reason to why it’s important, or why they exist. It’s important when you are setting up your own Web Servers, and Websites to make sure they are encrypted to secure the consumer, and yourself when it comes to delivering and storing information. SSL Certificates are important to maintaining your Website’s visibility to new customers/leads. The amount of businesses, especially in Winnipeg. That have an insecure Website is ever-growing. And it’s important to get the word out to check your websites URL. If you can still access “http” without it redirecting to “https” then that’s a major problem to your security. Please ask your Web Provider to setup a redirect to “https” so that way your consumers don’t accidentally stumble across an insecure version of your website. It’s not that you may not have an SSL Certificate on your website, it’s that your current Web Server it’s hosted on doesn’t have a proper redirect to the secure version of your site. If your website URL shows “https” without it appearing insecure. Then you should be all set! If you have any questions, or concerns on how to keep your data, and your consumers data protected and secured. We at CloudLocal are always happy to help. We talk everything about how to manage and upkeep your server technology. Austen Young,President and Web Consultant. “Book a time with me now!” […] Read more…
