SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is a security standard that allows you to securely access a website. When you visit a site that uses SSL, the web address will begin with https:// rather than http://. This means that all of your interactions with that website are encrypted, and any information you enter is safe from hackers.

Google considers websites that utilise https:// to be safe, and using https may help your website rank higher than a non-secure website. In their Chrome browser, Google began distinguishing between safe and non-secure websites in January 2017. The word “secure” or a “I” may appear at the beginning of the web URL. If your site is secure, users will be more likely to click on it.

If your website is not secure we can help you with this during the website redesign process.
