The Update in a Nutshell
What is an SSL Certificate?
Why you should install one?
- Keeps your website data secure
- Improves SEO as Google will rank HTTPS pages higher
- Builds/Enhances customer trust
- Lowers the risk of hacker attacks
Where is it installed?
If your website is hosted with Egami we can install the SSL Certificate onto our web server to initiate a secure session with browsers. If you're with another web hoster we can also install it for you. Once a secure connection is established, all web traffic between the web server and the web browser will be secure.
When a certificate is successfully installed on your server, the application protocol (also known as HTTP) will change to HTTPs, where the ‘S’ stands for ‘secure’. A browser will show a padlock or green bar in the browser when you visit a website that has an SSL Certificate installed.
