We are sure that you heard that Google is working to make the web safer. Well, that’s something they say. Whether such or simply a nice way to announce another change, the fact is that Google intends to demand apparently all websites using a security certificate that makes your url is no longer a typical http but https.
As many of our readers are webmasters, business owners, resellers, people who work in advertising, etc, not everyone knows what that means. So in the first part of this post we will start by explaining what https is. Then we’ll discuss what it means for a business website to switch from http to https. Let’s get started,
What is HTTPS and SSL?
SSL: A certificate with domain data from a website. Actually, a security technology that serves to browsers to certify that site is secure.When a browser takes you to an address, it examines, if a website has a certificate guaranteeing that the website you are opening is safe. You can see that a website and a domain have a security certificate when https appears in your url.
In One sentence, SSL is a security technology that permits for a secure data encrypted connection.
There are 3 types of validation SSL. And these are:
Validation level domain: It is the most economical certificate and only provides basic encryption.
Validated Organization: include authentication of the company or the organization that owns the domain.
Extended Validation: This is the highest level of authentication and a thorough examination of the business will be required before issuing it.
HTTPS: The syntax of the URL based on HTTP, which indicates that the data is traveling over an encrypted SSL connection to technology
This is very common in ecommerce websites or membership site, since our data will eventually leave on a website either from our faces to our payment details are safe and are not going to fall into the hands of cyber criminals.
Do I need to apply to all web sites?
The feeling that you get after reading the article published on the official Google webmaster blog is that there is really a requirement of using the syntax https or a security certificate on all your website.
This will force all of you to buy a certificate for your site, as this way we will tell Google that our site is secure and any data captured from our visitors is protected.
But there are many who wonder if this requirement is not so rigid that will distinguish blogs that only publish information or basic corporate information websites.
It seems unnecessary. But we have all witnessed the vulnerabilities that have transpired as news, and espionage cases, perhaps after all it is beneficial to ourselves.
We’re talking about encrypting the data, counter attacks, reduce vulnerabilities, in short make the Internet a digital playground safer for both owner of a website as well as for Internet and users.
This might not help people who argue that the Internet is safer than before? If we stop to observe the attitude of a major consumer of the real world in relation to shop online, most of them are still afraid to do it online.
Although the natural history of the consumer seems to take no jostling to make their purchases online with confidence as if it were real purchases, it seems that the system will have more reason to defend the online purchase and your main objection.
We want to know what you think about this and the future of the web using https as a scaling factor.Is it an opportunity to encourage online purchase or is nonsense for blogs not marketed this way?
