Google want to make the entire web secure, so they will rank your site higher if it has an SSL certificate than if it hasn’t. SSL certificates allow a website to run over https rather than just http, signified by the padlock in the address bar in all modern web browsers. The ‘s’ means that your site is secure; and that all data transferred between a visitor’s computer and your website is encrypted, such as personal data submitted on forms and passwords submitted on logins. Your visitors will be able to see the padlock and know that your site is secure.

There are three levels of protection that can be provided. All Cultrix hosting account customers receive the basic protection DV (Domain Validated) certificate free, for up to 200 domains and subdomains per account; we even automatically renew them every three months. For greater protection, you may wish to opt for an OV (Organisation Validated) certificate. And for ultimate protection, an EV (Extended Validation) certificate is available, which will turn your address bar to green in most browsers to demonstrate this greatest security to your customers.

Once you have your certificate, if you need a web developer to configure your site correctly to action and enable the certificate, you’re in the right place; we have plenty of web developers in the house.
