Utilize modern website security protocols.
SSL certificates for HTTPS are necessary for all modern websites. They prevent customer data from being leaked and indicate your adherence to website security standards.
Protect your website and visitor data.
Using SSL certificates is the only way to utilize the HTTPS encryption protocol so that sensitive data sent to your website is protected. This prevents attacks and leaking of customer data which can be harmful to your business.
See improved SEO results.
Google and other search engines take HTTPS into consideration when ranking websites, and Google’s Chrome browser will mark your website as insecure if you are not utilizing HTTPS. Get a leg up on the competition by improving Time to First Byte and overall load time.
Increase visitor trust in your website.
Websites with an SSL/TLS certificate display a lock icon to demonstrate to visitors that they are a secure website. With an extended validation certificate, you can also assure customers that they are at the correct website.
Get set up quickly.
section.io provides several options for SSl/TLS certificates at no extra cost, including automated certificate generation within the section.io portal and ongoing renewal of certificates.
