Is My Website Secure?  What is SSL?

Howdy, CanvasHosters!  It’s your old pal Lawrence here with a friendly reminder that as of July of this year, Google is calling out websites that still use http protocol instead of https.

If your website isn’t coded for https, then visitors will see a menacing looking message in their address bar that reads “Not Secure”.

While this poses no real threat, it can turn off potential customers who may not know any better, resulting in lost sales or other valuable exposure to your market.

Here is a great article which details this a bit more: https://www.fastcompany.com/90207043/chrome-is-calling-out-insecure-websites-starting-today

CanvasHost can now perform a full website/code conversion for most of your hosted websites for a flat fee of $200 (which is a fantastic deal given the current standard rates for web development of this kind).

There is minimal to zero downtime for your website during the conversion and it generally takes about 3 hours to complete.

If your website doesn’t have an SSL certificate installed that’s no problem either. We can now install a free auto SSL via cPanel for any of your domains on our network.

So contact us  today and schedule your https conversion by emailing design@canvashost.com or sales@canvashost.com and we’ll get it all taken care of for you!
