Securing Your Website (Video)


By Jay Adamsson

You can tell if a website is secure by looking at the little lock at the top of the screen. When you visit banking websites, or any other reputable website that takes your financial information, you’ll see that the site is secure.

But website security is not only for the big sites – anyone can add security for their sites.

Why should you add security to your site? Wrong question – you should automatically ask for default, and only ask if there is a reason not to add security. Watch the video below to find out why you should be making your site secure.

Hi. This is Jay with AOR Web Solutions, and I’m going to talk to you today about making your website secure.

If you’ve done online banking, or if you’ve dealt with online companies such as Amazon, you’ve probably noticed a little lock up in the corner of your browser. That tells you that your communications are secure. That way, nobody can listen in and steal the information you’re exchanging with that website.

Why not extend that same courtesy to your own visitors? It’ll make them feel better knowing that you’re taking their privacy and their communications security seriously.

It’s easy to do – it normally only takes a developer a few minutes to do it.

It’s inexpensive, costing only a few dollars a year.

And Google has said that they will give a little bit of a boost to sites that have security.

So, it’s inexpensive, it’s easy your visitors will like it, and Google likes it.

Why would you not put security on your website?
