We’ve touched on this before, but it’s more important today than ever before. Here are our top 5 reasons for moving to HTTPS:
- For your user’s privacy
HTTPS encrypts the requests and responses made between your site and your users – protecting them from a range of security threats, such as man-in-the-middle attacks which allow people to monitor private activity.
- Gain trust & improve conversions
HTTPS helps instill trust with those that care about their security. This is especially important for those with EV certificates that signpost their details.
- Avoid the dreaded ‘Page not secure’ warning
Pages with logins, password inputs, cards details & other sensitive forms will let users know if the site they’re using isn’t totally secure. Do you really want potential customers to be put off before they’ve even signed up?
- Get a healthy ranking boost from Google
Google is a BIG advocate for the protocol and sees it as a solid ranking factor. Implement HTTPS for your site, and chances are you’ll find your site has jumped up a spot or two on Google’s results pages.
- Chase the need for speed
