I want to know more about securing my website

Important Google Update: Don’t Let Your Website Be Marked Unsecure

Google announced that on July 1, 2018 it will run a major update to Google Chrome. At that time, websites that do not have a correctly installed security (SSL) certificate will be marked as “not secure” in the Chrome browser.

What will happen if my site is not secure?

  • Your Google search ranking will be negatively affected
  • The hits to your site may decrease
  • Your site’s bounce rate (when someone comes to the site and leaves quickly) may increase

What can I do?

Install an SSL certificate to your website.

How do I know if my site has an SSL certificate?

Your site already has an installed security certificate if your website starts with HTTPS:// in the URL bar.

If your website starts with HTTP://, you do not currently have a security certificate installed and your website will be marked “not secure” by Google Chrome on July 1, 2018.

How do I get an SSL certificate?

At Paradigm Marketing and Design, we offer SSL certificate installation. This can usually be accomplished in 2-4 hours, depending on your hosting provider and the size and scope of your website. Contact us with questions about your website today.
