Recent updates to mainstream web browsers require that all websites have an SSL certificate to prevent ‘insecure’ warnings being shown to the visitor. This is especially important in South Africa.
Why is SSL essential right now?
- Most South African visitors will exit the page immediately if they see a security warning.
- Websites without SSL are ranked lower than websites with SSL on the search engines.
- Websites which have SSL are trusted (green padlock appears in toolbar).
- Your customers are protected while using your SSL-certified website.
Can this wait?
Adding SSL to your website should not be delayed. Websites without SSL are being penalised by search engines as you read this. It is becoming more difficult to find unsecured sites when searching the web because they are ranked lower than sites which have SSL security.
When visitors reach a non-SSL web page they see a browser warning. Depending on which web browser you are using, this could be a warning in the toolbar area or may even be a full-page warning if the browser tries to submit information insecurely (eg. a web form to an insecure page). This makes the visitor feel unsafe and they are very likely to close your web page.
