How to Switch to HTTPS
We make switching from HTTP to HTTPS easy for small to mid-sized businesses.
Google announced earlier in the year that they would begin displaying the security of connections in the address bar of Chrome Version 56? This is the beginning of a long-term plan to mark all HTTP pages and content non-secure.
HTTPS notifies users that all data provided from the website they are visiting is trustworthy and has not been altered. Users are starting to get messages from browsers when they visit a web page that is Not-Secure. Sites with HTTPS display a “Secure” message, helping build trust.
HTTPS confirms that all the activity complete on the website will be encrypted. This also means that the website and activity cannot be visible to someone who is trying to sniff through network traffic.
HTTPS protects sensitive information. Website users want to be confident that their sensitive information, such as credit card or personal information, stay secure and do not fall into the wrong hands.
Security is a top priority for Google. They invest a lot in making sure that their services use industry-leading security, like strong HTTPS encryption by default. Now, more than ever, they are putting emphasis on HTTPS in the search ranking algorithms.
Our work goes beyond initial installation. Once your SSL is installed, we make sure your website settings are updated, force HTTPS rules are set, and all non-secure content is updated.
Simply sign up below and we will coordinate a call to introduce you to your SSL installer and collect all the information we need to make a successful switch.
We will help you secure the right certificate for your website and make sure you take the necessary steps to get it installed properly through your web hosting provider.
We will update the configuration of your website to point to HTTPS instead of HTTP and fix all insecure content. We will also redirect all incoming requests for your HTTP website to the location of the HTTPS site to help with search engine optimization.
Lastly, we will re-verify ownership of your website in Google Search Console and update the sitemap location. We will also update your web property’s configuration in Google Analytics.
Installing an SSL Certificate isn’t a decision about if you should make the switch. You need to decide when you want to make the switch to HTTPS. Build credibility. Earn trust. Increase search rankings. Sell more. Contact us for a custom quote.
