If you’re using WordPress and you haven’t enabled HTTPS yet there’s a few steps you should follow. Google issued a final warning for any websites not using HTTPS by October 2018 stating that it will display a warning for visitors. There’s really no better time to make the switch to HTTPS. Your search rankings will likely be affected and if you’re running WooCommerce then you definitely need SSL.
Domain names, hosting and SSL Certificates - it’s all a bit confusing! What I can tell you straight off the bat is that it’s now an essential tool for both security and SEO to have an SSL certificate for your website, even if you’re not running an ecommerce store. In this post I’ll run through the different SSL certificate options and I’ll spare you as much jargon as I can!
HTTPS or SSL is a secure method of encrypting data that is transmitted between your computer and your website’s web server (or the website you are visiting). Basically, HTTPS is a more secure version of HTTP (the “S” is for secure!) HTTPS gives websites trust, security, and a rankings boost!
You may have read about Google Chrome advising it’s users that it will be changing the way non-HTTPS websites are displayed and accessed. At the very least, you have probably seen a warning on some websites that you’ve visited saying they are not secure. The warnings can range from the website not loading before you accept the security concerns to a red warning in the address bar.
Hang on, web hosting? What’s web hosting got to do with SEO I hear you say?

But what CMS’s are available to you and which is the best choice for your website?

If you live in a rough neighbourhood, you could be vulnerable to theft and burglary. You might choose to beef up the security measures around your home. The internet is a dangerous place, full of hackers and bots trying to steal and corrupt your data. Any weakness is exploited and if you don’t plan ahead, you could be facing an expensive re-build or worse, having to explain to your customers how their data became lost or stolen.
