Let’s start to understand Security protocol first before talk more about details.
Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is a variant of the standard web transfer protocol (HTTP) that adds a layer of security on the data in transit through a secure socket layer (SSL) or transport layer security (TLS) protocol connection.
Concerning the security of websites enforce the giant tech web firms to take action accordingly. Gathering many sensitive data from customers such as credit card details, personal details etc. Therefore, website owners must ensure the security of their websites and reassure customers the website safe. Google has started to block HTTP websites which very important point for SEO ranking of your website. The ‘S’ after the HTTP is saying that all data transfer processing in website securely.
How can I install SSL for FREE?
Used to be, you had to buy an Ssl Certificate and install on your website to make it your website HTTPS. You can do the same at this time, too. There is another way to have SSL certificate which is a freeway. Cpanel is offering free SSL which by powered by Comodo. You just need to contact your web hosting provider to make it activate. Once enabled the cpanel authority will assign the SSL for that domain and will be activated in between 8 to 12 hours from cpanel authority. The auto ssl option can be enabled for the domain from whm panel of the server and it is valid for each 90 days period and after that, it will be renewed automatically from cpanel authority.
There is same option for Plesk panel, too. In the plesk panel, you need to install ” let’s encrypt ” plugin so that from that “let’s encrypt ” will be available for domains on that server. You can install SSL certificate from the plugin.
In this way, your websites will not be blocked by Google which is very important for search engine ranking level of your website. Also, all data will be gathered in a secure way.
Should I do anything else after activation of SSL?
You should also rebuild/create your sitemap again after activating your SSL certificate. Also, you should make sure all images and other kinds of stuff in the website fetching from https URL rather than HTTP. Web browsers will not show your website %100 secure if some images, videos or banners fetch from ‘http’ URL. You just need to change URLs as HTTPS if you face such an issue.
We strongly advise checking the security certificate of your website to prevent your website from any blocking issue by google or other search engines. Having SSL certificate will give trust to your visitors also to your customers. They are going to feel their data is safe on your website.
