But before you do that, it is important that you know what it is all about and why you need it.
SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificate is a security certificate that once installed on a web server activates a secure connection between the browser that the surfer is viewing the content on and the web server that it is derived from, it results in an HTTPS secure URL string, also a security padlock will be present in the URL as a way to signify the secure state of the website. With this secure connection, the information becomes encrypted and unreadable to everyone except for the client that you are sending the information to.
On the 8th of February, Google made known its intention to formally mark websites lacking SSL certificates as insecure, so sites that retain the HTTP non secure protocol will be flagged with a warning in the URL bar of the surfer’s browser, this has already been built into the chrome 68 which was released in July. Google and other browsers have been working on this for a long time, since last year, Google and Mozilla began the push towards universal encryption by changing the UI on their browsers. Many site owners have taken Google’s warning seriously, the time has come for all websites to migrate to HTTPS, what are you waiting for.
It is impossible to escape the rising rate of cybercrime if your website does not have an SSL certificate, this secure connection helps the web cut down on instances of cybercrime that are often carried out through loopholes in web browsers, as an unsecure HTTP protocol can give spaces for hackers to seize vital information, such as credit card information from the website. The padlock icon builds brand power and helps to build customers trust that their information is safe with you.
Difference Between HTTP and HTTPS
HTTP is ancient by computer standards, it is a protocol for communication and have worked fine for a while, but unfortunately, it is not secure. When you make an HTTP connection with a website that is not secure, anyone can eavesdrop on the connection and steal and manipulate any data passed back and forth, and browsers have begun marking HTTP sites as ‘not secure’.
HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) is secure. In this case, when you make a connection with a website, the data is encrypted, which makes it impossible to anyone without the corresponding key to eavesdrop or manipulate the connection. HTTPS can also block ISPs from injecting ads on your website, it’s faster and perform better. Any website with SSL is marked as ‘secure’, which is signified with a padlock icon. it adds that extra level of protection, mostly when a user shares vital information. Google has also added that HTTPS will also act as a basis for search engine rankings.
