HTTP Sites Marked As Not Secure

Google will mark all HTTP sites as ‘not secure’ starting in July

According to a blog post published by Emily Schechter, Chrome’s security product manager, Google will mark all HTTP sites as “not secure”. Starting in July, the browser will warn users with an extra notification in the address bar stating that the website is not secure. To comply with this new update, all website owners will need to purchase an SSL Certificate before the end of the month.

What does HTTPS do?

HTTPS encryption protects the channel between your browser and the website you’re visiting. By doing this it ensures no one in the middle can tamper with the traffic or spy on what you’re doing. Without that encryption, someone with access to your router or ISP could intercept information sent to websites or inject malware into otherwise legitimate pages.

  • If I needed help setting up our SSL Certificate is that something you all do? Or is it pretty easy to setup?

    • Thanks for the question Thomas!
      Yes this is something we can help you with! If you purchased your SSL Certificate at the same place you purchased your hosting package it’s pretty easy to setup. If they were purchase at different locations it’s not a problem. We set them up all the time.
