Google start to warn visitors that sites without SSL are Unsafe


If you don’t have a SSL, it might be time for an urgent rethink.

Since the start of 2017, Google’s Chrome have started to warn visitors that sites without encryption are not secure and may be unsafe.
Why are Google warning internet users?
Some media write about Cybercrime & Internet security News frequently it affects a lot of individuals and is increasing. Google, wants the internet to be safe, some may also say as the worlds leading search engine, it has a duty of care to warn users if a site isn’t secure. One way is to make us all Get a Secure Cert.

SSL is no longer an optional extra for websites it’s as essential as your email. Because in the coming weeks, the question isn’t going to be when need to get HTTPS.

Silkweb Group have been talking about SSL Certs for years but what is a SSL Cert?
It’s a data file that digitally bind a cryptographic key commonly known as an algorithm which transform plain text into encryption text. This file is unique to your business’s details.
This SSL cert is installed on the web server which hosts your Domain and website, it activates the padlock and the https protocol and provides the secure connection from the website to the device viewing the site. Normally, SSL certs are used to secure credit card transactions, or when private data transfer forms re in use and secure logins

There are many types of Secure Certs
DV SSL Certificate domain validation
OV SSL Certificate organisation validation
EV SSL Certificate Extended Validation
Wildcard SSL Certificate allowed to be used on subdomains
SAN SSL Certificate allowed to be used Alternative Names

The main difference in these certs revolves around what information the Certificate Authority, checks in order to issue a certificate. In some cases they will ring the number on your site and send you a letter with a code.
Of course you also have Certs which won’t support Mobile browsing, and they are not the free ones. If you want Free SSL I will give you one it will last for 30 days. But if you want the correct Cert and keep your site on the internet Contact Us
