Secure Your Site with HTTPS and SSL
Want to protect your website from hackers and attract more insurance prospects at the same time? There is a way: migration to a secure site with HTTPS. And we make it easy!
What is HTTPS?
It’s basically a more secure version of your website that protects your clients and prospects from certain kinds of hacking and helps your site rank higher in Google searches.
There are a number of important benefits to HTTPS:
- Keeping your website (and customer information) safe. Switching to HTTPS prevents hackers from being able to “see” the information your clients and prospects enter on your website.
- Ranking higher on Google. When someone uses Google search, Google gives preference to secure websites over non-secure ones. That means your site will rank higher than comparable non-secure insurance sites.
- Improving client trust. Clients who use your website want to know that you take their personal information seriously. Switching to HTTPS shows them their confidential information is safe with you.
- Appearing as more professional. Top businesses are switching to HTTPS because of the added security. It’s quickly becoming the new industry standard for professional websites.
How to add HTTPS to Your Site
Once we start receiving traffic through your domain name, our system will automatically configure your site with HTTPS and SSL. No need to purchase an SSL certificate or configure anything.
The process generally takes a few minutes, so if you initially see your site working but not secured, come back in about 30 minutes and check again. If your site is still showing that it's not secured, let us know.
NOTE: While we are setting up your site we use a 'staging' URL. This URL is not secured with SSL.
