Why is 2017 the Year of HTTPS and SSL?
Back in 2014, Google said that if your website was HTTPS it would give that site additional ranking signal in search results. This is a good thing for businesses that have websites that are competing with other businesses for position on search engine results pages. Google also said they wouldn’t penalize the websites that are not secure. Well, at least not with their algorithm.
In September 2016, Google announced that in January 2017 they would begin displaying the security of the connection in the address bar of Chrome version 56 and up on pages that display a password and/or a credit card field. This is the beginning of a long-term plan to mark all HTTP pages non-secure.
HTTPS encrypts your visitor’s data and provides integrity, so that the no one can modify or read what’s being sent and received or perform a man-in-the-middle attack. It helps protect you from attackers big and small – from governments to coffee shop hackers.
Five years ago, developers would have probably winced when asked to set up HTTPS. But today, with Parkingtim-hosting packages, it is a totally different story. HTTPS has gone from an essential yet sidelined technology, to one of the most important aspects of your website.
