“Keeping your website secure is about more than protecting information from falling into the wrong hands. It’s also about protecting the integrity of your business and your brand. Not only does SSL technology protect you against hackers and malicious software, it also protects your information from being accessed by third-parties who are studying your website behavior for their benefit, or companies who want to show you specific advertisements based on your internet activity.”

-VisionAmp’s Owner and Lead Developer, Greg Alexander

There you have it! Why go through all of the pains of growing a business, only to set yourself up for failure? Are you willing to risk it all? Did you know that only  3% of all online users have said that they have entered their credit card information on websites that are not secure, or are missing the green padlock? That’s 97% that may be wanting a product you have, but are leaving your site to go to a more secure site. Don’t risk another day without a secure website, and for sure - don’t submit information to a site that is not secure.

The five letters - HTTPS - that appear before a website’s domain name/address are more than just letters. However, each day millions of people venture online without even giving these letters a second glance. If you rely on sales from your website, or your site takes any kind of personal information from users, this is even more important. Your customers want to know that their personal information is safe and not at risk of being compromised.


If you don’t have an SSL Certificate, a secure connection cannot be established. This means that your company’s information will not be digitally connected to a cryptographic key. An SSL Certificate has the following information:

  • Name of the holder

  • Serial number and expiration date

  • Copy of the certificate holder’s public key

  • Digital Signature of the certificate-issuing authority

When you perform a quick Google search, a list of websites and descriptions pop up. Most of the sites begin with HTTPS while others start out with HTTP. (Example:


Google and other top search engines have been pushing website owners and creators to make their websites mobile-friendly, responsive and most importantly, secure. Google is aggressively requiring website owners to implement an SSL certificate on their sites. Google’s aim is to become a trusted search engine.
