Why does my website need an SSL Certificate?
If your website does not have an SSL Certificate (Secure Sockets Layer) attached then it's quite possible that when people land on your website for the first time they will be presented with this message:
My question is, would you proceed? No probably not and nor would we recommend that you do. For the website owner this is a massive problem because they've probably spent a lot of money and time designing their website and it's fallen at the very first hurdle.
The good news is that it's a very easy fix and something a good web designer can help you with, there is normally a small charge to add an SSL to your website but if you are using an established, professional web design company then they will have added your SSL as part of the design process. The best way to check if your website has an SSL attached is to Google your company and take a look at the padlock in the far left corner of the address bar, if the padlock is grey like this then it's all good.
If you padlock looks like this...
Then it's time to speak to your web designer or purchase an SSL Certificate. If you would like some help with SSL and site security then please make contact we are very happy to review your website and make some recommendations.
