Peace of Mind for you and your visitors…
Please take a moment to provide permission or decline this complimentary offer to secure your website with a FREE SSL Certificate. The installation fee is waived as I am covering this as part of your active website hosting service with InterActive Synergy, LLC.
Why you want to add the SSL Certificate to your website
- Google favors SSL sites
- Slight performance improvement (Google loves that too!)
- SSL encrypts sensitive information that you send and receive
- Visitors gain more TRUST that information they enter on your website is not going off to an unknown middleman
- Make more sales when selling online
Why you might not want to add the SSL Certificate just yet!
- Most website pages link internally to other pages in a website. If the links or images were hard coded to have an absolute path (http://domainname.com/linktoanotherpage) the site may be flagged as mixed content. A fix is to use relative paths (/linktoanotherpage).
- Themes and Plugins may contain cookies or scripts which get flagged as insecure content. You really have little control over this.
- Another thing to consider after installing the SSL is you’ll need to update your Google Analytics and Webmaster Tools to reflect https:// vs http://
- Also, remember to start using https:// when referring to your site on other websites, or on your business card, etc.
If your website is more than a few years old, it’s quite possible you have absolute links. You can make the changes yourself or contact me for an evaluation. If you have Google Analytics and Webmaster tools, you can manage these yourself, or have me do them inexpensively or as part of an SEO package.
