Google recently announced that they will be ranking secure websites higher than unsecured websites. Secure websites have an ‘SSL Certificate’ installed on the server. When a website is secured, you will notice that the URL as https://whatever.com instead of http://whatever.com. A secure website is a best practice for creating secure shopping carts, but it is also good for protecting form submissions. SSL Certificates cost approximately $100 per year and needs to be managed annually. Please contact us if you are interested in adding an SSL to your website.
