Keep your customers safe - show them your website is secure!

85% of online customers do not trust a website without a valid trust seal.

Users are becoming more and more aware of security signals in their browsers – don’t give them the opportunity to doubt the security of your website at any stage of the interaction.

What is an SSL certificate?

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. It is a protocol which allows secure connections from a web server to a browser. SSL works by using a cryptographic system that uses two keys to encrypt data. As there is an additional layer of security to check the encrypted connections, website performance maybe affected slightly (a few milliseconds) per page load. However the benefits of an SSL by far outweigh this small drawback.

Website SSL Adoption Rates:

The Benefits:

Any business that wants an SSL certificate for its website must be checked by the certificate authority issuing the certificate, this will boost your efforts towards the upcoming GDPR compliance laws.

If your site uses account logins with personal data, then you should have an SSL certificate in place anyway. Visitors who know their information is protected are more likely to keep coming back

If you are selling online, then expect your shoppers to check to see if you have SSL. Without it, they might not even stay long enough to see what you have to offer.

Whether it’s an exclusive promotional code or voucher you’re sending to your website visitor, SSL protects the information you both send and receive.

Google gets it, so should you…

Google has already stated publicly that a strong HTTPS encryption by default for a website is a factor within their search algorithm. This means that SSL protected websites will likely receive a small increase in ranks over non-SSL websites. As of January 2017, Google is holding websites accountable with security warnings in the Chrome browser if no valid SSL certificate is found on pages with sensitive information requested.

In a nutshell…having an SSL:

  • Boosts your credibility by confirming the authenticity of your business.
  • Let’s visitors know they are safe and their private data is protected.
  • Assures visitors that you are real and they aren’t visiting a fake site.
  • Reduces visitor abandonment by ensuring that your SSL certificates are valid and your trust logos are visible.
