How Important is a Secure Website Design?
The following are excerpts taken directly from the Official Google Webmaster Central Blog. These were not written by us or any SEO or security company, these are statements concerning Google’s efforts to make the Internet safer, so read them carefully.
Beyond our own stuff, we’re also working to make the Internet safer more broadly. A big part of that is making sure that websites people access from Google are secure. For instance, we have created resources to help webmasters prevent and fix security breaches on their sites.
Pay Special Attention to This Statement
Why a Secure Website Design is a Requirement
If you followed the HTTPS Everywhere link above and watched the video, then you know this is true. When Google engineers “recommend” something it means just do it. You DO NOT want to be behind the curve on something like this, it is much better to implement HTTPS on your site now to get ahead of your competition, or at least not fall too far behind. Luckily it is not too hard to do, and we can help. Just contact us for more information.
We Have the Best Prices on Secure Website Design
Now that you know your new website needs to be secure, or that your current site needs to be secured you need to consider how much this will cost. There are two important costs to consider, first is the initial cost of installing the SSL certificate and the second is the fact it requires your site to have a dedicated IP address. Many web hosts charge a monthly fee for dedicated IP address and only allow you to install SSL certificates they sell.
My Island Designs can recommend a host that offers a free dedicated IP address and lets you install any SSL certificate you like. Our recommended web hosting service and SSL certificate could save you $100 a year or more. If you are having a new website designed or your current site redesigned you will save even more since we offer this service free of charge for all new sites and redesigns.
