Today's users have more doubts about online privacy than ever before. To assuage those concerns, Design Spike offers SSL Site Hosting. An SSL (or Secure Sockets Layer) is a standard technology behind establishing an encrypted connection between a web server (host) and a web browser (client). This connection between the two makes sure that all the data passed between them remains private. So how can you tell a website is secure? See that little green lock in front of the website URL? That says that the site uses an SSL. If you don’t see it, the site is not secure.
In 2017 Chrome and Firefox started displaying additional warnings on websites that use insecure connections. We expect these rules to become more strict as SSL transitions into the baseline standard across the web.
Moving to SSL today ensures that your site will be compliant with the more restrictive set of rules that will inevitably be implemented.
Google also gives a slight boost in rankings to sites that provide SSL connections. Though we can't tell how much weight Google gives to SSL, search engine users are more likely to click links that start with "https://".
