When you sign up to receive a quote, we will provide a thorough review of your website and a detailed security report. We do not provide a fixed price for migrations. The reason we do this is because your website is unique and the amount of time it takes to properly convert your website to HTTPS will depend on a number of factors including server type, number of secured domains, and other technical factors. We’ll schedule a time with you to learn a little bit about your website, then we’ll provide a custom quote and scope of work. If all looks good, we’ll get started and collect everything we need to make your HTTPS conversion securely. We never share sensitive information via email. We’ll collect things like web server info, content management system access, and any off-site properties like Google Analytics via a phone call or through an encrypted channel.
Why Switch to HTTPS?
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.
End users inherently don’t trust websites. Encryption isn’t an option it is a requirement. Over 75% of users are aware of security risks when visiting a website and are concerned about their data being intercepted or misused online. In addition, 9 out of 10 users are more likely to trust a website if it displays security indicators such as HTTPS.
To continue to promote the use of HTTPS and properly convey the risks to users, Firefox will eventually display the struck-through lock icon for all pages that don’t use HTTPS, to make clear that they are not secure. As our plans evolve, we will continue to post updates but our hope is that all developers are encouraged by these changes to take the necessary steps to protect users of the Web through HTTPS.
One of the biggest mistakes that businesses make when trying to make their website secure occurs during certificate selection. Selection will depend on how many websites you need to secure and the level of validation your website requires. We’ll help you navigate the maze of certificates that exist from open-source to paid to make sure that you have the best certificate for the absolute best price.
There are many SSL Providers. There are many backend web developers. There are many SEOs. There are many marketers. There are even other conversion services. But there is no other company that combines the unique set of skills and resources to provide a complete custom solution to HTTP to HTTPS. Our process, people, and tools have been refined over thousands of development hours. In addition, we have developed a proprietary process that enables us to work more efficiently, so we can focus on additional tasks important for website security, performance, and search engine optimization.
Switching your website to HTTPS has a ripple effect. Many business executives, in-house marketers and developers overlook the critical tasks and other opportunities that arise post-conversion. From seizing press opportunities, to implementing speed optimization tasks, to implementing additional trust seals to the user interface of your website – we cover it all.
