SSL Certificates 101

SSL Certificate 101 - Website Wellness • 237 Marketing + Web

If you don’t already have a security certificate for your website, it’s time to invest in this important level of protection. SSL certificates, as they’re known, establish a safe connection between the user and the server over which information is sent.

By adding a certificate – they are not terribly expensive – you demonstrate to your visitors that you care about the security of their information when they interact with your company or organization. Here are some handy tips:

  • Get your SSL from a reputable certificate authority that offers tech support.
  • Decide on the kind of certificate you need: a single certificate, a multi-domain certificate or a wildcard certificate.
  • Set up a redirect so site visitors and search engines always go to your https:// URL.

Ready to add an SSL to your site or upgrade the one you already have? It’s not difficult to manage on your own, but if you need assistance, just let us know!
