Recently, the Google Chrome browser has started notifying users of the browser when they land on a site as to whether that site is secure or not. That message shows up in the top left of the browser address bar.
If you want your website to show Google Chrome users that your site is secure, you need to install an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) Certificate on your website.
This is usually something that your hosting company can do for you. If not, you can hire someone to do it for you.
The SSL Certificate will then encrypt your website when sending information to and from your user’s browser. It makes your website safer, and protects your user.
It can also help you with your Google search engine ranking, meaning you will show up higher in the search list when someone searches for your information.
SSL’s vary in price based on where you get the SSL Certificate, who installs it, and what kind of certificate you get.
If you are using WordPress, you will also want to install a plugin such as Easy SSL to force your site to use https:// on all your files when someone visits your site.
