How To Protect Your Web Site with SSL Certificate

What Is The SSL Certificate?

SSL certificate is a special protocol that guarantees security and secure connection to your site. This protocol guarantees you secure and secure communication over the following elements: Authentication and encryption. The fact that the site has a secure connection is indicated by the suffix “S” – that is, the protocol will already be called httpS.

If you own a website that operates and processes information linked with electronic money, stock exchanges, and online stores, then you need to secure this information, since secret data is transmitted. With the secure httpS connection, you can secure yourself as well as users who also want to receive confidential information protection.

HTTP / 2 Protocol Application

Soon the Internet is waiting for the transition to the new HTTP / 2 protocol. He is the accelerator of the site.

From the history…

The first version of the HTTP protocol was released in 1991, it was called HTTP/0.9. Later, version HTTP1.0 appeared in 1996, then version HTTP/1.1The HTTP/1.1 protocol dates back to 1999. Since the sites today have experienced a major upgrade (using Javascript scripts, CSS styles, video) over time, this types of protocols has acquired a new problem: several connections are created during data transfer. This is essentially slows down data processing from sites.

Already with the advent of HTTP/2, the download process gained momentum and websites began to work better. Downloads speed with connecting via this protocol increased by 23%. HttpWatch experts a real acceleration of around 30%.

Google indexing sites with HTTPS.


In August 2014, Google announced that user security is the most important and important priority for companies:

https://webmasters.googleblog.com/2014/08/https-as-ranking-signal.html

At the same time, they declare that sites that provide reliable connection and data transfer (those that use the https protocol), can count on the added bonus when ranking. The main goal was to encourage webmasters to move to a secure protocol.

In December 2015, Google announces that from now on, the HTTPS version of the page will be indexed by default, if the site is available for indexing by both protocols: http and httpS

Further, on December 27, 2016, Goodle posted on its Google+ news page that sites that do not have connecting via httpS connection, but you need to enter passwords there, or information about bank accounts consider such sites unsafe. It is very important today to those sites where there is some information about passwords, billing information and other confidential information go to a secure connection.

Taking care of your personal data, we recommend that you register an SSL certificate on your website to be surein hacking protection and intruder intrusion and your site will be indexed better than a site without secureconnection.
