Website https Upgrade

Websites owners are now being encouraged by the browser companies to upgrade from http to https. This is a more secure system for transferring information over the internet.

All part of the changes to make the internet safe. The browser companies now show an alert in the browser address bar “Not Secure” when websites are still on the old http set up. This can discourage visitors to a site when asked to interact.

The upgrade to https can also help with search engine ranking. 301 redirect should also be applied, this will manage any links to other sites. In general, the upgrade is not expensive, a good web developer could implement the upgrade quickly. Well worth considering for website owners.
